lockupyourdaughtersitsrodstewart.jpgIndie blues dudes the Black Keys are tentatively down with the idea of doing a collabo with Naugahyde-y, septuagenarian-beloved crooner Rod Stewart after the sixtysomething made eyes at them during a recent interview. We’d say the Keys better hurry up before they miss their window of opportunity, but of course, Rod Stewart is never going to die, at least so long as there are further installments of The Great American Songbook to be flogged.

    This…might be a good idea? I’ve always loved Rod Stewart for adding some showmanship and sincerity to the ultra-loose, supremely crunchy line up of The Faces. Maybe the Black Keys would be a good foil…

    @JudgeFudge: “Faces” Rod Stewart has been dead for at least 20 years. I’m seeing the influence/contamination of this endeavor as a one way street, and the apparent direction isn’t giving me much hope.

    I thought that picture was of Barry Manilow.

    @gorillavsmarykate: I so totally thought the exact same thing.

    I used to defend Rod Stewart, thanks to the Faces and his 68-74 solo albums, which I still listen to while pensively mourning his downfall. After hearing a few Songbook tracks, I officially gave up.

    I’m a little disappointed in the Black Keys. Maybe they’re thinking this is the only way they’ll ever get a Grammy?

    What about that collabo they were working on with DangerMouse and Ike Turner? I feel like the Black Keys are working on strange collaborations with my drunken father’s record collection, and I feel naive for anticipating it.

    Strangely conflicted on this.

    Rod 20 years ago, yes!

    Rod now, with some autotune help, maybe.

    Rod now, in front of the Black Keys, live?

    Don’t think he’s got the pellets, to be honest.
