Jack White: Rain King

Josh Eells has put together a cool article on RtBE boy crush Jack White and it is pretty boosh.  You should take some time and read it here from the NY Times Magazine.  While we would like it to focus a bit more on the music then his personal life, we recognize our nerd level interest and anything that highlights Jackie boy is A-OK.  
There are some really great quotes, our favorite being:

 "Kids today never say, ‘Man, I’m really into remote-controlled steamboats.’ They never say that.”

His relationship with Bob Dylan gets a bit of type space and the fact that Bob is a welder and taught White pretty much blew my mind.  No mention of our favorite Raconteurs, but we will live.  The idea that two bands are supporting him and neither one knows which one is playing any given night is pretty odd and a bit excessive, but we need to catch him an action before we pass final judgement. 
"Love Interruption"

"Sixteen Saltines"

Hey Jack, Eddie Vedder bailed on Jazzfest, think you could cover?  Bring any kinda band you want to.
