Nick Hasted: Jack White - How He Built An Empire From The Blues

Books

Catalogue No: OP56276
Artist: Jack White
Format: Books | Biography

From a minor Arkansas club performance on 9/11 to 2005's thunderous anarchic Glastonbury set and beyond, here is the full unlikely saga of John Gillis, aka Jack White, rock's self-appointed agent provocateur. The story includes his musical influences, his relationship with Meg White (whose name he adopted on marrying her) interviews with collaborators Neil Young, Seasick Steve and Brendan Benson, and detailed accounts of every White Stripes, Raconteurs, Dead Weather and Jack White solo record.

This first major biography of Jack White explores the wayward life of an outsider growing up in the ruined city of Detroit who was to become an idiosyncratic rock star and founder of a highly influential independent record label. It amounts to an atmospheric and definitive account of the extraordinary musical journey of a man who has turned out to be one of 21st-century rock's most compelling figures.
