For the uninitiated, today we discuss an offbeat band by the name of The Raconteurs. You may know one of the members, who is none other than Jack White, formerly of the White Stripes. In his prolific style he even formed yet another band called Dead Weather.
I really enjoy Jack's music as he enjoys creating an old style with new licks. He is a virtuoso with his guitars and the effects he makes are at once halting and sometimes even earsplitting. He is a true artists, artist and gives very few interviews. He says they are not relevant to his art.
He also created the soundtrack to the movie Cold Mountain and produced Loretta Lynns, Van Lear Rose album among many other projects. He is always re-inventing himself and holds true to those who came before him.
Uncut magazine calls Jack White, the musician of the decade 2000-2009.
In my opinion he is a true-blue, newer classic rock artist who doesn't let popular opinion sway his musical direction. He always seems true to the love of the genius of his craft.
