  • Jack White is an American musician that sings, plays guitar, and occasionally acts. He also is a songwriter and a record producer. His musical instruments also range in variety with vocals, guitar, piano, organ, bass, drums, marimba, mandolin, xylophone and clavioline. He became one of the most influential people in rock music in the early the 21st century. He has achieved a huge amount of mainstream success throughout his musical career. As the front man of “The White Stripes,” Jack White helped restore the popularity of punk blues. He is considered by many as one of the best guitar players of the 21st century.
  • Jack White was born in Southwest Detroit, Michigan on July 9th, 1975. He was born with the name John Anthony Gillis. He grew up in a lower middle class neighborhood in southwest Detroit with a large, working class catholic family. He was described as a kid with short hair and braces.Jack was the youngest of ten children and was close to his catholic roots. The church played a big role in shaping his views during his growing years. Jack White served as an altar boy to consider a pursuit in a life the priesthood. At age fourteen he thought it was possible he might have had the calling to be a priest.
  • It was at age five that White began to learn the drums. He and his childhood friend, Dominic Suchyta, would listen to records in White’s attic on the weekends and began to record cover songs on an old 4 track. Jack Whites musical preferences were not the same as his classmates. Many of his classmates were into the hip hop and electronic genres of the surrounding Detroit neighborhoods. Instead as a teenager, Jack White was already interested in and listening to the blues, 1960’s rock that would influence him in “The White Stripes”. Shortly after this happened he got his first paid musical gig by playing the drums for a popular local Detroit band called “Goober and the Peas.” He also played in other local bands as well as doing solo shows. Because of being a fan of the blues, rock and roll, R&B, and 1960’s era, he began writing the first recordings of his own compositions before starting high school.
  • In 1990, at age fifteen, he began working a three year upholsterer’s apprentice with a family friend. He and his friend Brian Muldoon trained here for a future career in the furniture trade business. His friend introduced him to punk music during their time together at the apprenticeship. Jack White soon had his own business and named it Third Man Upholstery. He was sidetracked with writing poetry and drifted away from a career in upholstery. Jack White credits his friend Brian Muldoon with exposing him to punk rock music and urging him to play music together as a band. Muldoon played the drums so Jack White said, “I guess I’ll play the guitar (it might get loud). They both ended up recording a demo album under Moniker, and then they both recorded an album “Makers of High Grade Suites,” from “The Upholsterers.”
  • Jack met Meg White and were married on September 21, 1996 and were divorced on March 24, 2000. Three years later he met Renee Zellwegar during the filming of Cold Mountain. There breakup became public up in December 2004.
  • In June of 2005 Jack White met and married model Karen Elson. A year later in 2006 they had a daughter that they named Scarlett Teresa White. The following year in 2007 they had a son that they named Henry Lee White. In June of 2011 they threwa divorce party to celebrate their sixth anniversary and the "making and breaking of the sacred union of marriage,"
  • Jack White has been in multiple bands including The Upholsters, Two Star Tabernacle, Goober & The Peas and The Hentchmen. He also has had three main bands that have been very successful bands that I’m going to go share about. They include The White Stripes, The Raconteurs and The Dead Weather. He is about to release his solo album titled Blunderbuss.
  • In 1997 Jack White formed “The White Stripes” with his ex wife Meg White. Their bands career started with playing aside local bands as part of the Michigan garage rock underground music scene. They named themselves The White Stripes and preformed their debut at a local Detroit nightclub during the summer of 1997.Doing this for the next two years they created a name for themselves they were signed to Italy Records and in 1999 The White Stripes released their self titled album. The album featured the single “The Big Three Killed My Baby,” which had low sales but good critical reviews. After this album they came out with their sophomore album “De Stiji,” which also impressed critics. Following “De Stiji” The White Stripes earned international attention with the album “White Blood Cells.” It became one of the most critically acclaimed albums of the decade. Follow ups Elephant, Get Behind Me Satan and Icky Thump have secured The White Stripes’ place in the pantheon of rock legends.
  • Jack White went on to help found the rock band The Raconteurs in 2005. In The Raconteurs White aimed towards a more traditional structured band. They named their debut album “Broken Soldiers.” The album had a lot of success. They still branched out as their reputation grew, building upon an initially minimalist sound with elements of metal, backwoods country, pop, and early rock and roll.
  • After having a family and already two successful bands Jack White created a third. In 2009 White became the founder of his third band The Dead Weather. In this band Jack White played the drums.

The song was released in 2011 by EMI records. Their album was influenced by Spaghetti Westerns and has been five years in the making (www.thisisfakediy.co.uk). They used different instruments with different musicians to create a vintage sound that didn’t feel out of date.
  • Jack White spent many hours driving around listening to the instrumental mixes while recording his ideas on a hand help tape recorder. This was how Jack White created the knockout octave vocals for the song “Two Against One”. White sings over an eerie style of backup vocals. The song is about a mercenary character in a heroic battle with his self loathing. This was Jack White’s first song released since The White Stripes split (www.newsinglesreview.com).
  • From Jack Whites first hit band The White Stripes. It is from their album Elephant and is titled, “Seven Nation Army”. White plays the guitar and sings while Meg White plays the drums.

It was recorded in April 2002 at London’s Toe Rag Studios and released April 1, 2003 by V2 Records. The riff was created at a sound check by White before a show.
