The White Stripes London 2001

I like to think of myself as a very passionate person. When something jibes with me and I "get it" I dive in head first. Music is probably the clearest example of this in my life. When I am lucky enough to stumble upon an act that changes the way I think about a whole myriad of things I obsess. Pink Floyd, Neil Young, The Who, Ryan Adams, My Morning Jacket...the list goes on. But one person, across multiple bands, has captivated my attention for longer than any other and that person is Jack White. For years now he has been a daily part of my life. And that is not an exaggeration, I listen to something from The White Stripes, The Raconteurs, The Dead Weather or solo Jack every single day. His raw intensity and sheer dedication to his craft is absolutely admirable and I find inspiration in his work ethic constantly.

Fans of my musical taste (aka - The Steam Engine) know of my love for Jack White and if you haven't truly given him a chance then I encourage you dive in. If it clicks for you it will be an infinite free fall of amazement and wonder, maybe you'll even draw some inspiration from it as well.

The White Stripes 4th Street Fair

Wayyyyyyy early White Stripes sets for you here. This has to be one of their first shows ever. If you look at pictures from this event, you will see a very, well, lousy looking Jack White with the worst haircut I've ever seen. But, give the recording a listen and you'll hear signature Jack White, the guy is just unique.

Jack White III has his first solo record coming out this April and is playing a handful of shows right now. None of which are near Chicago. BLAST! I'm sure more dates are to come though.

It has been a while since I've gotten any White Stripes up so here is a big one. This is actually a compilation of two different radio interviews and a performance done by The White Stripes for the BBC. Excellent all the way through.

The White Stripes - 2005-11-30 - Live at VH1 Studios

 


Jack White really has a hold on me and this good news from the White Stripes camp (in an interview with Jack from Vanity Fair) has me mucho excited:

 

"We thought we'd do a lot of things that we'd never done: a full tour of Canada, a documentary, coffee-table book, live album, a boxed set. It was one long project that took almost three years.Now that we've gotten a lot of that out of our system, Meg and I can get back in the studio and start fresh."
