Black Keys Drummer: 'Perfect Music Is Boring'


Black Keys drummer Patrick Carney says music fans are losing their appreciation for rougher art by listening to the slickly produced music on the radio these days.

During a recent interview with Jam.ca, the rocker says that some fans don't even know what they're missing.

"Perfect music is boring music - that's the kind of stuff they play in an elevator. I think people are losing an ear for [raw music]. I think everybody has it but you've got to exercise it," Carney says.

"When you turn on the radio it's all kind of perfectly sequenced, perfectly written, perfectly performed by machines. It's hard not to listen to the Who and really understand these are wild men going crazy or Led Zeppelin - these are human beings that play that, it's all hard to kind of put that in perspective."
