I went over to The Black Keys twitter last week to see if there were any updates, and pinned up on their profile was a tweet about how sick Richard Swift was and how he needed help with his medical funds.
This is so sad.
Richard Swift was best known for his work with Dan Auerbach, The Black Keys, The Arcs and The Shins. He was a musician and a producer, a singer, a songwriter, and an essential figure in indie rock. RIP.
"He was the funniest person we ever met, one of the most talented musicians we have ever worked with and we feel so honored to have known him. RIP Richard.” - Dan & Pat— The Black Keys (@theblackkeys) July 3, 2018
