Jack White's Blazing Guitar Work
I knew Jack White was a guitar hero, but hot damn: dude is a nuclear blues bomb. He's currently on tour with two bands, one all-female and one all-male, and word is he doesn't tell which band he's playing with that night until just before the gig. On Saturday night, he chose the all-male band Los Buzzardos, who delivered tunes from each of White's musical outlets, including Dead Weather, the Raconteurs and the White Stripes, with wild, muscular abandon. They surpassed "Love Interruption," the gentle country-folk single from his new solo album 'Blunderbuss,' for riff-a-paloozas like "Sixteen Saltines." He even played a crunchy version of Hank Williams' "You Know That I Know." The show closed, naturally, with a fist-pumping take on "Seven Nation Army." The guitar is this man's third appendage.
