He's made enough good songs with the Stripes and the Ranconteurs for me to vote NC.
- "Whatever happened to that album?"
- "I broke it, remember? I threw it against the wall, and it like, shattered."

I've never particularly cared for any of his musical ventures but I respect his efforts. NC I guess.

Pretty neat. Picture of FM goosman on the lathe.

Reaffirming Not Crap for a guy doing cool things with his fame and resources.

I didn't really have a vote, but the news about Third Man reissuing the Laughing Hyenas catalog may change that.
I play guitar for Elma and Buistra.

Along with Nirvana and Radiohead, the White Stripes were the gateway band for me in high school, when I was first getting into music for real. The Stripes records still hold up, and I still think that Jack is a standout songwriter of his generation. Been underwhelmed with him since then, both as a "dude" and as a songwriter, but he's still capable of good work now and then. I can understand why he would rub a lot of people the wrong way. And I get how many would be indifferent and put off by his music, especially if they were older and already well-versed in underground music and rock history when the White Stripes came along. But I still think the White Stripes were a pretty special band, if only for the many strong melodies that accompanied Meg's primal stomp. Not so much his other work, which I could care less about.

I must say, I am rather fond of Mr White, and of the things that he does.

If Sting wanted to be bluesy instead of jazzy. Crap.

Fat Dude: Jack White

I never liked the White Stripes. I always thought they lacked any substance and were all about image. Jack White's solo work is even worse. But it was only when I learned that Mr. White likes to push and punch the others (preferably smaller and weaker dudes) that I fully appreciated the "Zorro on doughnuts" remark by one of the Gallaghers.

When you think about it, that's the greatest thing about the Gallaghers: dissing the other terrible music acts. And when you think some more, Jack White pushing either Mr. Noel or Mr. Liam would be the greatest POP satisfaction since Nirvana broke. And a win-win situation on top of it. The problem is, thugs rarely pick a fight with another thug. That's why it will never happen.

I guess the Gallaghers have fifty years' practice at insulting each other. "He looks like Zorro on doughnuts" is classic.

That was entertaining, but where is the "undercover" part in answering question about you and your band under your own name?
