Consider The Black Keys' guitarist Dan Auerbach among those who took the COVID-19 situation from the beginning. In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Auerbach says he began wearing face coverings back in January.
“I’d heard about all this stuff kinda early and I wore a mask, and everyone was calling me crazy. So I was kind of quarantined already.”
In the interview - Auerbach gave an update on the multiple projects he has going on:
The Black Keys:
The Black Keys were set to hit the road this summer - continuing their Let's Rock Tour ... but those dates have now been cancelled - including the show scheduled for Merriweather Post on August 28 :/
In regards to when we might see Dan and Patrick back on the road again - it sounds like they are playing it safe - and will be waiting until there is a vaccine readily available.
But - the duo has been using this time to work on some studio works - that includes a expanded edition reissue of the album Brothers - which just celebrated its 10th anniversary.
