The Black Keys’ Patrick Carney Shares ‘Tales From The Trip’ With Comedy Central
The Black Keys‘ Patrick Carney shared a psychedelic story for Comedy Central’s Tales From The Trip video series. Carney recounts an anecdote of when he took magic mushrooms in the back of The Black Keys’ tour van.
The adventure takes place in 2003 when The Black Keys were conducting their first real tour of Europe. On a trek through the UK to London, Keys guitarist Dan Auerbach procured two “giant…fresh…mushrooms” that looked like “Smurf houses,” as Carney puts it. The drummer reveals that he didn’t really do drugs and could barely smoke weed. But after eating a bit with nothing happening, Carney ate the rest and madness ensued. “I’ve taken mushrooms since,” he continued, “and nothing has come remotely close to what started happening to me.”
