The Black Keys were the subject of a feature profile on CBS Sunday Morning yesterday. On the show, band mates Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney return to their home town of Akron, Ohio, with CBS contributor Anthony Mason to take a tour of their old neighborhood, visit with family, take a spot on their high school's Wall of Fame, and discuss their rise to being what Mason says "may be the hottest rock band in the country." You can now watch the profile online at cbsnews.com, where you can also find a photo diary from the show here.

The band returned to the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California, on Friday for the second of two consecutive weekends headlining the Coachella festival. This time, the band was joined by one musical legend to help celebrate another, when John Fogerty of Creedence Clearwater Revival fame took the stage with them to perform The Band's "The Weight," in honor of the late Levon Helm, whom Auerbach says was an inspiration both to him and to Carney.

"The gesture by the Black Keys was touching and fitting in a set packed with explosive and gritty roots rock, including hits 'I Got Mine' and 'Lonely Boy,'" writes the Los Angeles Times' Jessica Gelt, who concludes that at Coachella, "the night belonged to the Black Keys—and to Helm." Watch the performance below.

On Saturday, The Black Keys released a deluxe vinyl issue of their critically acclaimed 2011 album El Camino in honor of Record Store Day. The package also contains a bonus CD, a limited-edition poster, and a 45 RPM 7" single featuring two previously unreleased live tracks: "Sister" and "Money Maker." A limited number of this Record Store Day exclusive are available in the Nonesuch Store.
