Did you know JACK WHITE released his first solo album last week? I'm obsessed. I listened to it for 2 days straight. I can't decide which song is my favorite. I know which song is my least favorite, but there is part of it that I LOVE, so I pick them all. Before it was released I listened to it streaming live on iTunes.

Here is Jack performing two of the new songs, "I Guess I Should Go To Sleep" and the title track "Blunderbuss." LOVE.

Tonight Jack is playing here in LA at The Mayan. It is a smaller show. Tickets are impossible to get. I would KILL to go. He'll be back at the end of May for two shows at The Wiltern. Also impossible to get tickets, but maybe as the date gets closer more tickets will open up?

For now I'll just have to settle for the AMEX UNSTAGED concert Jack performed last Friday at Webster Hall in New York. It was live on youtube. Did you watch? Fear not. You can watch it again. I probably will! He played for nearly 2 hours. First with his all female band and after a short break with his all male band.


They played songs off the new record, White Stripes, The Raconteurs, and The Dead Weather (all his bands, if you didn't know). I read an interview recently where Jack said that he always felt like he and Meg, as the White Stripes, were really just playing covers of his songs. Interesting.

I LOVE this man's talent. You might not care for his voice. I do. His guitar playing is spectacular. Watching him play the drums is an experience. I think he is the greatest musician of our generation. Have you seen "It Might Get Loud"? The part where Jack sits down and writes a song right there on the spot? Genius. I could go on and on, but I have to get back to listening, dancing and head banging to BLUNDERBUSS.

I told you I'm OBSESSED.

ps. Music Monday might become a regular thing. Or maybe not.
