It's only right, then, that some of the survivors of those past eras are paying White some tribute… More »

Jack White Named Ambassador Of Record Store Day 2013

Yesterday, I was walking through the Brooklyn neighborhood to which I moved not three weeks ago, when I fell upon an indie video store that had just that day announced a going-out-of-business clearance sale.

The 10 Least Boring Moments From The 2013 Grammys

About two thirds of the way through last night's endless Grammy ceremony, Justin Timberlake ambled onstage for the second time, this time to flank Recording Academy CEO and inveterate pirate-scolder Neil Portnoy. Timberlake asked a question: "Best Grammys ever?" Then he answered himself: "Best Grammys ever." Well, no, Justin. The idea of a "best" Grammys,… More »

Watch Frank Ocean, Jack White, Miguel Perform At The Grammys

Watch Jack White Play Austin City Limits

I'm having special levels of good feeling toward Jack White right now, after watching my Baltimore Ravens advance in the playoffs in Ray Lewis's last-ever home game. (Ravens fans like to chant the "Seven Nation Army" riff after every big play. Because we're awesome.) And it's pretty fortuitous that White appeared on the PBS live-music… More »

Watch Jack White’s Winter In Portlandia Cameo

On Portlandia's special holiday episode, there was a sketch in which Fred Armisen played a nervous, vintage-gear-obsessed studio engineer who uses the phrase Pet Sounds over and over, like a tourettic tic. To guys like that, Jack White must be some sort of glowing deity, so that's the form he took when he showed up. More »
