Black Keys drummer Patrick Carney filled in Monday at the home opener for the Cleveland Indians for drummer John Adams, who is recovering from heart surgery.
Carney is a lifelong Indians fan and one half of the Grammy Award-winning rock duo from Akron, Ohio
Adams missed his first home opener since 1973, ending a run that has featured him sitting high in the left-field bleachers and pounding a steady beat whenever the Indians are hitting.
Carney was thrilled to be able to sit in for Adams.
\"I\'m stoked to be here for John,\" Carney told The Associated Press. \"It\'s the best seat in the house and I wish John could be here, obviously. When I heard he wasn\'t healthy enough to make it, I thought it was good way to pay some respect to him and show him some love.\"
