I don’t know about you, but I love a drum battle.
Sadly, we don’t see nearly enough (any?) gratuitous ego-driven drum solos from Pat. That’s a good thing and a bad thing. The Black Keys are so tight on stage but a break out moment for Pat might relax things. No doubt he’s secretly thought about it.
Now Pat’s time might have arrived for a drum battle. I can’t but help think that the The Roots Picnic gig on June 6, 2009, in Philadelphia might be the moment.
The Roots, featuring drummer Questlove, are an awesome live band. Questlove has produced and collaborated with many acts. The Roots are acting as the backing band for Public Enemy, before doing their own show, at The Roots Picnic.
In the spirit of collaboration, how cool would it be to see an extra drum kit rolled out during The Black Keys gig with Questlove aboard to battle Pat? It would be a great rock moment.
Dan could nonchalantly look on, smile and shake his head.
I don’t know about you, but I vote for drum battle! What do you think? Let’s make it happen. The campaign starts now…
