How did two dudes from Akron, Ohio make the platinum leap?
After Beiber’s “snub” Carney told TMZ that Bieber doesn’t really need the gongs. “He’s rich, right? I mean, I don’t know. Grammys are, like, for music, not for money, and he’s making a lot of money. I guess buy a minivan and go on tour – see what happens.”
The Black Keys are the dominant rock band of the moment, if the GRAMMYS are to be believed. The band won a handful of awards, while Dan Auerbach has won an additional one for Producer […]
Dr. John’s Locked Down exposed the New Orleans legend to a new audience, and much of that was due to the album’s producer: Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys. Tonight it took home the GRAMMY […]

The Global Citizen Festival in New York City was an event with a stated goal to “Celebrate the progress made in fighting extreme poverty, secure financial commitments for tackling extreme poverty and disease, and mobilise thousands of ambassadors for change.” But festival headliner Neill Young made sure that this wasn’t your average televised money and awareness raising concert: when he and Crazy Horse played “F***in’ Up,” it took the event straight into PG-13 (or R) territory.
Notorious for dissing other bands, karma has bitten the Black Keys in the form of two counter lawsuits from Pizza Hut and Home Depot denying they ripped off two of the band’s songs for TV spots.
Information on how to get tickets is available at Global Citizen’s website: you can earn tickets by “learning, sharing and taking action against global poverty.” Three points gets you into a drawing to win a pair of tickets to the festival. There are also limited V.I.P. tickets available that you can purchase.
