The Black Keys Drummer Injured On Holiday


It is not good news for The Black Keys’ drummer Patrick Carney, the musician injured himself while on holiday in the Caribbean.

The hospital is always one of the last places you’d want to visit while on holiday, Carney was rushed to hospital in St. Barths with a dislocated shoulder.

While frolicking in the clear blue Caribbean ocean, Patrick was reportedly hit by a rogue wave.

It’s a pretty devastating injury for a drummer and depending on his recovery, the Black Keys might have to postpone their scheduled shows in the UK next month.

According to reports from TMZ: “Patrick was rushed to an ER and put under with anesthesia so doctors could reset his shoulder. The drummer is out of the hospital and recovering … but we’re told he’s still in a whole lot of pain.”

Despite being in pain, Carney found time to make light of his situation. He posted a photo on Instagram with the caption: “Tune into my new lifetime movie. ‘Dislocated shoulder’ airing right now.”


The Black Keys speculated that they are ready to make another album, despite only releasing their last record Turn Blue in May 2014.
