Jack White

Famous for being the frontman of the band The White Stripes he formed with his ex-wife and drummer Meg, Jack Gilles (aka Jack White) has continued to work on a range of projects and collaborations. A fan of classical and blues music as a child, White started playing instruments and eventually wound up as a drummer for Detroit band Goober & The Peas. He formed The White Stripes with Meg White in 1997 (keeping her name after their divorce three years later) and together they have recorded six albums, with a seventh in gestation. During this time, however, White worked on numerous other projects including (it is rumoured) Electric Six's songs Danger! High Voltage and Gay Bar, as well as forming The Raconteurs in 2005 with Brendan Benson, Jack Lawrence and Patrick Keeler - and releasing two albums. The indefatigable White put together a new ensemble in 2009, The Dead Weather, teaming up with Alison Mosshart of The Kills, Raconteurs' Jack Lawrence and Dean Fertita of Queens Of The Stone Age and released a debut album Horehound the same year. He has also developed a solo career, including writing the soundtrack to 2003 movie Cold Mountain and partnering with Alicia Keys on the Bond theme Another Way To Die for Quantum Of Solace in 2008.
