Some friends of mine are going to see Wanda 'n' Jack in Brooklyn this week. I'm jealous.
Here's Jack White back in action in Wanda Jackson's Thunder on the Mountain. "He's on fire," one friend commented re this video. "Jack does rockabilly quite believably," said another one.
Gorgeous video, I think. That dark oak paneled room is upstairs at the United Record Pressing plant. I've been there. Interesting juxtaposition between sexed-up slo-mo Jack buttoning his pink rock'n'roll togs at the beginning and Jack-getting-his-hair-ruffled-like-a-toddler-which-he-is-to-Wanda-let's-face-it later on.
Talking about believability, Jack White is one of the few guitar players I've ever heard who has absolutely no Chuck Berry genes. It doesn't seem to slow him down. And I'm getting used to the facial foliage.
