The Black Keys: College Drop Outs!

The BLACK KEYS, a band consisting of a guitarist who was the captain of his soccer team in high school, and a drummer who was an outcast in high school. Even though they were from different social circles, they both shared a  common love: MUSIC. Their friendship blossomed and they began making music.

They both attended University of Akron and dropped out of school to pursue music. Some were saying they made a mistake Now they have millions from their contagious rock indie sound.

It’s ironic to me how people told these two to “get an education” or “find a job” and even “contribute to society”. Now they are a musical sensation and a duo that is high on the Billboard rating charts.

I’ll give you one of my favorite songs: The Black Keys-Tighten Up.
