The Black Keys' Rip Into Sean Parker

Posted by - 01:37 PM on 03/27/12
The dude in the The Black Keys really likes to speak his mind. Um, more power to him I guess. Recently he called Sean Parker (founder of Napster and investor in Spotify) an asshole for "figuring out ways to steal royalties from artists."

Who are The Black Keys? He should probably focus more on getting his band noticed before worrying about people downloading their music.

I love how he also says in the interview itunes treats artists fairly but spotify doesn't. What a joke

They're on an arena headlining tour right now. Pretty sure the "noticed" thing happened already.

You can always tell a Jason Tate news post if it stops in the middle with an 'um' or 'uh.'

But what if I listen to Nickelback on Spotify? Do those two negatives cancel out?

Does he know that Sean is a huge philanthropist at this point as well as his business partners? See Founders Fund and Causes. Hard to continue to be pissy about the past.

Is he trying to hold on to the last bit of hipster cred The Black Keys has?

It'll be breaking news when we find out The Black Keys actually like someone.
