Uncle Jesse x The Black Keys

Apparently John Stamos is kind of a musician in real life. Am I the only person who didn’t know this? I mean – don’t get me wrong – I was completely convinced during the Full House years, but after that series John Stamos and music never collided again. Imagine my surprise when I found out that he’d be collaborating with none other than The Black Keys on their latest album.

On their newest album, John Stamos will actually be playing the drums for the band. (MULTI-TALENTED!)

“We’re working with John Stamos,” Carney of the Keys said. “He’s actually performing the drums on our album.”

Honest Words From A Musician
