The sons of Jim Carney and Chuck Auerbach grew up blocks apart in west Akron. The boys, Pat Carney and Dan Auerbach, went onto form the rock duo The Black Keys. Their sixth album "Brothers" debuted earlier this year as No. 3 in the charts. The band tours with sold-out shows world-wide. And the Black Keys play to a hometown crowd this weekend.

Dads Jim and Chuck say they're understandably proud of their sons, and while they don't take credit for their success, parental support was part of it.
