Jack White Information

Most famously known for his role in the band The White Stripes, White is very easily one of the best musicians and guitarists around today. The White Stripes began in Detriot, Michigan and since 1998 have released six albums and achieved major success with albums such as White Blood Cells, Get Behind Me Satan and Icky Thump. The band was an awesome blend of garage rock, punk and raw blues. The unique blend of Jack’s erratic guitar playing and over the top vocals blended with Meg’s primal drumming made their sound seem so much bigger than just two people. On February 2, 2011 the band officially announced that they would be parting ways, an announcement that deeply saddened the music community.

White has also played parts in other bands, his first being The Raconteurs in 2005. The band, consisting of White, Brendan Benson, Jack Lawrence and Patrick Keeler, released two full length albums Broken Boy Soldiers and Consolers of the Lonely. Then in 2009 he formed The Dead Weather with the frontwoman of The Kills, Alison Mosshart. White took a departure from his usual guitar playing and handled drums and vocals while Jack Lawrence came back to play bass and Dean Fertita played guitar and keyboards. They also released two full length albums, 2009’s Horehound and 2010’s Sea of Cowards.

As a solo artists, White has worked with numerous musicians such as Electric Six, Alicia Keys, Danger Mouse and he was one of three guitarists to be featured in the movie It Might Get Loud alongside Jimmy Page and The Edge. White released his first official solo album in April of 2012 titled, Blunderbuss led by the single “Love Interruption”. For his concerts White employs two bands, The Peacocks, an all-female group and the other is Los Buzzardos, an all-male band. Jack White is currently on tour supporting his new record.
