At the recent Sydney 21 June Black Keys concert I went to, I remember watching the Roadie setting up their gear, checking the microphones and guitars and drums before the band hit the stage. I also remember watching him standing silently from the side of the stage throughout the show. But most of all I remember his beard and thinking he looked like Dan’s elder brother.
When I got home and later looked at the photos I had taken on the night I looked at this photo (below) quickly. A few days later I looked at the images again and I was drawn to the mysterious presence of the Roadie on the side of the stage (in green shirt) looking kind of sinister. You’ll also see him in most of the videos I’ve posted from this gig (more to come).
He just seems like an interesting fella with a story to tell and I want to know more.
Let me know if you know who he is and what his story is.
