The story behind Jack White is by now too long and would certainly cause severe difficulties in concentrating. He is one of today's leading musicians, he has a huge work ethic and he is an enigmatic character that captures our consciousness without problems.
With The White Stripes, he conquered the whole world, geographically and sensual, The Raconteurs gave him a larger arsenal to play with, The Dead Weather was a playhouse for White and Alison Mosshart running lost in. White has produced country music legend Loretta Lynn's magnificent "Van Leer Rose, "given to grips with Mozart by JEFF the Brotherhood and Insane Clown Posse. There are few things, if any at all, to stop him.
It is found that there are many irons in the hot lava but that's not all. In april this year we got first taste under his own name, "Blunderbuss ", an orgasmic album that moves across the Mississippi delta tinny guitars, the deep South's piano tones and Nashville's violins. If so, that White found home or lost is irrelevant. That he found the right is, however, easy to see.
Jack White does what he wants when he enters the stage, that we have learned by now, it can be White Stripe, The Raconteurs, or in any other installation. This time he travels with his six female strong live band. These multi-talented supporting White's minimalist blues punk and creates a really good swing live even if he feels a bit lost from time to time, the only thing I could rise an issue on, is the sound that was well so thickly in order to understand all the instruments.

Todays tune "Sixteen Saltines" is the second single on Jack White's 2012 solo album Blunderbuss. Jack White told NME about the inspiration for the lyrics: "My daughter asked for a snack, and I said, 'what do you want to have?', and she said, 'I think I'll have 16 saltine crackers.' And I said, 'You'll have three!' At times I imagined that character was eating cracker rations on a lifeboat and he's remembering all these other things."
