    I am guessing the Black Keys where influenced by the White Stripes

    They only came out a few years apart. They seem to have the same influences. But there's some serious bad blood between Jack White and Dan Aurbach

    I never really listened to the Black Keys and White Stripes and made any connection. Aside from both being two piece bands that is. BK's are way more bluesy to my ear anyways.

    I don't think you'd ever hear this sort of song from the Black Keys, as an example.

    Nah, the Keys make like this though. Their early stuff was way grittier

    Jack White apparently made the connection because Jack White said about the Black Keys "They follow me around and copy me and push themselves into my world."
