The Black Keys Star Patrick Carney: 'Our Marriages Were Doomed'

Subscribe Black Keys

The Black Keys star Patrick Carney fears he and bandmate Dan Auerbach's marriages were doomed to fail because neither of the rockers were prepared for success.

The drummer went through a bitter divorce in 2009 and Auerbach officially ended his marriage to Stephanie Gonis last year (13), and now Carney insists the two unions were destined to fall apart.

He tells the new issue of Rolling Stone magazine, "We're dudes from Ohio. We were raised to get a job, have a family. No one prepares you for what it's like to want to hold on to those ideals and balance it with this job.

"For years, you don't make anything and you're treated like s**t, and then it flips. No one can prepare you for that transition, and it causes real problems."
