    The Black Keys drummer Patrick Carney dislocated his shoulder over the weekend! Ouch! But hey, at least he did so while on vacation and not while on stage or doing something dumb.

    Here's the rub. Carney was in St. Barths and a monster rogue wave slammed him to the ocean floor, leading to his injury. While he was in a lovely locale, that's still a scary situation and we're sending our best to the kit minder.

    The drummer was rushed to the ER and his shoulder was reset while he was under anesthesia, according to TMZ. He was then released and is in recovery.

    Get better soon, Patrick! We hope he heals fully, since a drummer's arms and shoulders are critical to his craft. Carney is in our thoughts and our prayers.
