Dan Auerbach

You get to bring your own sound system when you play an arena, all the lights and visual stuff, which I think is really cool. There's something about those old arenas, where it feels larger than life.More Dan Auerbach [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
Everybody always wants to rebel against their parents' music, but nobody listened to music louder than my dad.More Dan Auerbach [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
I used to be really nervous when I sang. Like, when I was a kid starting young, 18 and 19, and my dad really had to sort of push me to start singing in front of people. Ever since I got out there and really started doing it, the only thing I've ever tried to do is just sort of is be myself, you know, never put on a voice. Sing naturally.More Dan Auerbach [03/12/2018 02:03:32]

I am nice to everybody. But people really take advantage of it.More Dan Auerbach [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
That culture, of looking at catchy music as a negative thing, is weird. It has nothing to do with me, or the music I was into growing up. The Stones and the Beatles only tried to write hits. Every Motown song, every Credence Clearwater song - they were trying to write hits.More Dan Auerbach [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
When I learned to play music, I was listening to blues music. And all the blues music I liked was super simple and stripped down. And then all the hip hop I liked was super simple and stripped down and we always heard that connection.More Dan Auerbach [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

Guitar solos bore the hell out of me. Only a few guitarists interest me, and it's not about the solos they play, it's about the grooves they create.More Dan Auerbach [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
A Grammy is really nice, but having lots of fans is really nice, too. I think just getting a record out is a success on its own.More Dan Auerbach [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

I tend to name albums after one of the songs.More Dan Auerbach [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I'm definitely a guitar player, but it's the last thing I listen to in a song, after the singer and the drums.More Dan Auerbach [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I'm really not worried about what fans think.More Dan Auerbach [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
My mum's family would all get together, with guitars, harmonica, mandolins and upright bass and play old blues and folk songs. That was normal to me.More Dan Auerbach [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The Black Keys is just a band that wants to get on stage and rock it.More Dan Auerbach [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The modern video games kind of - they're too three dimensional.More Dan Auerbach [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

Being 16 years old and getting an electric guitar is never going to get old. There's always going to be kids making music. There's always going to be kids in bands.More Dan Auerbach [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Hip hop is the new rock n' roll, you know what I mean? And anybody who doesn't think that is just sort of living in the past. It's all just American music, really, when you get right down to it.More Dan Auerbach [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I never listen to Led Zeppelin. But, I mean, I don't think Robert Plant or Jimmy Page listen to Led Zeppelin, either. We all probably obsessed over the same old blues records growing up.More Dan Auerbach [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I started playing bluegrass with my family, so there were the G, C and D chords. I was playing a Martin acoustic because that's what Carter Stanley of the Stanley Brothers played. Then I got into the really raw blues of Hound Dog Taylor and started on electric guitar.More Dan Auerbach [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
