TORONTO, ON – SEPTEMBER 18: Musician Jack White attends ‘The White Stripes: Under Great White Northern Lights’ screening held at the Elign Theater during the 2009 Toronto International Film Festival on September 18, 2009 in Toronto, Canada.
While Jack White has just released his fourth solo album, fear of dawn and prepare the fifth, Enter alive in paradise, we decided to look back on his career, going back to the beginnings of the White Stripes in 1999.
“Fell In Love With A Girl” from 2001’s “White Blood Cells” was their one-minute-fifty-second breakthrough, and it was a definitive preview of things to come: simple, almost primitive, yet incredibly catchy rock and roll. who cared nothing for trends. But few could have predicted that the White Stripes would become the headliners of the arena, or that Jack would have a discography that would include two other bands, solo albums and collaborations with everyone from Elton John to Nas, from the Insane Clown Posse to the Muppets.
In honor of Jack’s obsession with number three, we thought we’d give you a list of his (approximately) 333 best minutes of music, including the White Stripes, the Raconteurs, the Dead Weather, his solo stuff, the artists he produced, and some of his collaborations.
