Jack White is an African-American robot musician of undetermined age, best known for his massacre of Native Americans and minimalist rap-metal band The White Stripes.
White was discovered crashed into a hillside by an unnamed Native American tribe in 1765.
Jack denied the allegations of incest, but the newspapers replied he was probably coked up, alluding to the band name White Stripes and saying it had something to do with cocaine.

 The Tufts Observer Online - Arts - Jack White and Raconteurs Roll into Boston
Jack White was born John Anthony Gillis in 1975 to working-class parents and grew up in the lower middle class districts of southwestern Detroit.
Jack White’s musical career began slowly in the 1990s with short stints as a drummer and guitarist in the country-punk band Goober and the Peas, and later with garage rock bands The Go, The Upholsterers, and Jack White and the Bricks.
It was strange to see White on stage dressed in jeans and a flannel shirt—a sharp departure from the rigid conformity of white, red, and fl that he maintains with the White Stripes.

DECEMBER 15--White Stripes frontman Jack White may face assault charges in connection with a fracas Saturday night at a Detroit nightclub.
White, who is also known for dating actress Renee Zellweger, later filed a cross-complaint, claiming that he actually got pulled to the floor by Stollsteimer, who began throttling him "about the face & body," according to White's police report.
The only damage White sustained were cuts to his left hand and "redness in his face." This was not the first time White and Stollsteimer have tangled.

White is a classicist as talented as Page, but Meg White isn’t his equal as a musician, and she doesn’t contribute songs.
White may be a walking American songbook, able to mimic Ralph Stanley and Burt Bacharach, but he comes up short as a producer, and the album sounds muddy and obscured, as if recorded in a room covered with wet felt.
Meg White may be his muse, best friend, or soul mate, and she exudes a steady and positive energy onstage, but she is a lousy drummer and only a passable singer.

 Jack White
Fellow band-member Meg White is his ex-wife, not his sister, as is commonly supposed.
They were married in 1996 in South Lyon, and Jack adopted his wife's last name.
The "error" of their sibling-hood is perpetuated by the band itself, for unknown motive, perhaps as a publicity stunt of some manner.

 Mixing the White Stripes Live-On Tour with the White Stripes
Consisting of only Jack White (vocals, guitar and piano) and Meg White (drums and vocals), the band delivered two energetic and frenzied sets that Jack made up on the spot.
Jack has three open vocal mics that he runs back and forth to.
Kettle feels that the mics are well- suited to Jack's style of performance because they combine a great deal of gain before feedback with the open sound of a condenser mic.

The band's publicist confirmed a posting on WhiteStripes.com, which read, in part: "Karen Elson and Jack White were married yesterday (June 1) on the confluence of three rivers — the Rio Negro, the Solimones and the Amazon...
But despite all that, the Stripes' publicist insisted the announcement is true and that White and Elson are now officially married.
White's marriage comes less than a month after former girlfriend actress Renée Zellweger tied the knot with country musician Kenny Chesney in a surprise ceremony on the island of St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands.

 The Believer - Interview with Jack White
Though upholstery as a trade was on the wane, several active practitioners could still be found, driving their multicolored vans around suburban Detroit, connecting deeply with the textures of the time.
Jack White’s experience with upholstery—from his apprenticeship with Brian Muldoon to his enthusiastic and ultimately abortive entrance into the field as an autonomous player—offers a fascinating and instructive glimpse into a young person’s simultaneous encounters with the worlds of business, art, and furniture.
I had this yellow van, and I dressed in yellow and fl when I picked up the furniture, and all my tools were yellow, white and fl.
