Jack White - Legendary Guitarist Jack White Appears From Obscurity To Tell Modern Day Celebs What's What
As huge fans of Jack White's earlier work with The White Stripes, we maintain that he's deserved of the title legendary when it comes to guitar, and if he's not, then he should be. But instead of thrashing that 87 string guitar like we all know he can, he's been giving his pennys worth on Lady Gaga.
On Gaga, he says, to Esquire: "I don't think she lives it because it's all artifice. It's all image with no meaning behind it. You can't sink your teeth into it. It's a sound bite. It's very of this age, because that's what people want. They want a Twitter line, a jpeg, an MP3." And on Twitter, don't expect White to be joining the social networking site anytime soon. "The goal of modern celebrity is to make yourself into the lowest common denominator," he said. "'Hey, I'm a guy just like you. I like a beer, a football game. Especially in reality television, you'll see people will go so far as to make a fool out of themselves just to prove that."
"Twitter is the most perfect example of modern living," he added. "I think the only people who should have [Twitter accounts] are comedians. Because it's all about one-liners."
The last we heard of Jack, apart from this outburst (if you can call it that - he was doing an interview) was Blues On Two Trees - a track released as the B-side to the single 'I'm Shakin' in October, which was the first single to be taken from White's debut solo LP 'Blunderbuss'.
