LOS ANGELES (AP) — Black Keys' frontman Dan Auerbach says he lost sleep after inducting an openly ungrateful Steve Miller into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last week, telling Rolling Stone magazine Wednesday he "hated the feeling in my gut of being connected to that negativity."

Miller blasted the rock hall and the music industry during the April 8 induction ceremony and in press interviews afterward.

Auerbach told Rolling Stone he and bandmate Pat Carney were personally disappointed in Miller and regret participating in the ceremony. A spokeswoman for the band confirmed the comments.

"There's a time and place to stand up and be angry," Auerbach told the magazine. "But when people are honoring you for how great you are, that's not the (expletive) time or place... And I hated being a part of that."
