Music Monday-The Black Keys/RZA

I'm a huge Black Keys fan.  I heard they were coming to KC and badly want to see them live.  

I stopped enjoying concerts years ago when I used to drive to Lawrence, KS and wait hours to see the The Wu-Tang Clan.  They were always late and extremely stoned but well worth the show.  

When I found this video I had to post it.  I mean.  The Black Keys and RZA from Wu-Tang?  I can remember driving around Hutchinson in my 1983 Mazda GLC (mine was red) blaring this.  Yes, I was...don't judge...or do...whatevs.  We called it the "Dragon Wagon".  Mostly because we would squeeze about 5 oversized individuals into it and ride around listening to 90s rap doing things we shouldn't have been doing.  There was rarely anyone under 6 feet in the car at any one time.  A couple people were over 6'8.  It was so small I could reach back and roll the opposite rear window down while driving.  Needless to say it was comical.  But hey, we were young, and stuck in a small town with nothing else to do but play basketball and find trouble.  Studying was kind of out of the question...and you can only play so much ball.  Someone hit it in the parking lot one day and knocked off my bumper.  It was there fault.  But, since I didn't want to be late to class, I picked up the bumper and threw it in the trunk.  Probably not the smartest move on my part but it beat running laps for being late.  I sold it when I moved back home for the summer for $50 and free tow.

Twenty years laters and one of my favorite bands of today teamed up with a fave rapper of mine from back in the day.  It put a smile on face...and maybe it will yours too.  It also reminds me of a Quentin Tarantino movie...which I also like.  Happy Monday to you!  Amy
