Very few indie rock artists have been as busy as Jack White over the past decade. In addition to fronting the White Stripes, the Raconteurs and the Dead Weather (plus recently launching a solo career), White has written and produced records for country star Loretta Lynn and rockabilly legend Wanda Jackson, and he wrote and sang a James Bond theme with Alicia Keys...
Much has been made of Jack White's affection for classic, blues-based rock 'n' roll -- as well as his decision to go without a bass player in the White Stripes. But that doesn't mean he doesn't know a well-written bass line when he hears one -- or that he hasn't been inspired by artists from the other end of the pop spectrum.
You'd think everyone at Third Man Records would have their hands full getting ready for the release of Jack White's upcoming solo debut, 'Blunderbuss,' on April 24. But they still have a few hours left in the day, apparently, because the latest installment of the label's quarterly subscription series, dubbed the Vault, is offering members a whole bunch of White-related goodies.
It’s a good week to be a Jack White fan; first he debuts a new tune from his upcoming solo disc ‘Blunderbuss’ and now word on the street is that the Raconteurs are planning to release their first-ever live DVD, featuring footage recorded at a concert in 2008.
