nappy de merde 8 hours ago- This is the same discussion that kept TBK in the shadow of the White Stripes for all these years. How so? I understand there are four people onstage playing, and it is enjoyable to see that on those songs. I'd also like to see some female backing vocals on certain songs. Hell, put an freaking choir onstage with them, it doesn't matter. TBK are still a 2 PIECE BAND. And the only reason The Stripes are far more recognized than the Keys is the marketability of them. The ingredients: A dude who can play and sing a bit, a chick with a HUGE rack, signature red and white gear, and that's about it. They're hook is THEY'RE LOOKS. PERIOD. The Keys hook is THE MUSIC, which unfortunately isn't what is most important to much of the music buying people today. I like the White Stripes, have all their albums. Love the Keys , have all their albums. The ONLY comparison is that there are 2 PEOPLE IN EACH BAND.
p.s. I can't get enough of Ten cent pistol from the Fallon show, sick!
