På The Black Keys nye album “Delta Kream” feirer de den originale Mississhippi-bluesen, R.L. Burnside og Junior Kimbrough blant de som inspirerte bandet i sine tidlige dager.
Første låt ut er “Crawling Kingsnake” og Dan Auerbach forteller om låta: “I first heard [John Lee] Hooker’s version in high school. My uncle Tim would have given me that record. But our version is definitely Junior Kimbrough’s take on it. It’s almost a disco riff!” Carney adds, “We fell into this drum intro; it’s kind of accidental. The ultimate goal was to highlight the interplay between the guitars. My role with Eric was to create a deeper groove.”
