The Black Keys and John Fogerty

The night that we lost Levon Helm, the great singer/drummer for the Band, Bon Iver played tribute by covering the Band’s “Ophelia.” One night after that, in their headlining spot at the second Coachella weekend, the Black Keys paid a grand-scale tribute of their own. Inviting former Creedence Clearwater Revival frontman and classic-rock archduke John Fogerty to the stage, the band covered the almighty Helm-sung Band song “The Weight.” Watch a fan-made video of the performance below. (The camera starts out sideways, but it doesn’t stay that way, so don’t worry.)
