Several readers have now commented on the latest issue of Rolling Stone, which features the Black Keys on the cover.
The article begins like this:
Patrick Carney is pretty sure he knows what's ailing his chosen genre these days. "Rock & roll is dying because people became OK with Nickelback being the biggest band in the world," he says, blowing cigarette smoke out the window of his rented East Village loft a few days before the band heads to L.A.
He and his fiancee, Emily, moved from a Lower East Side walk-up to a house with a pool in Nashville in 2010, but they got restless there, so they rented this pied-à-terre, a fully furnished loft in a building with neighbors including Fabrizio Moretti, Bret Easton Ellis and, apparently, Tom Cruise (who may or may not live on the same floor).
One reader ask if we knew what building this was.
Sadly, we actually do know where Tom Cruise lives...
... a not-so-secret American Felt Building on East 13th Street between Third Avenue and Fourth Avenue. (Difficult to miss the SUVs, photographers, catatonic wife, etc., when he's around...)
Anyway, now you know where to go to have Carney sign your limited edition 12-inch of "Lonely Boy."
