I sort of always fought really liking the White Stripes. I have always respected Jack and thought that they were relevant. I even went so far to think that he is one of the most important musicians in recent memory not just for his work with the White Stripes, but for all of his other side projects, but I'm reassessing my opinion of them. Not only is his music valid, and right up my proverbial alley, but his stage presence and enthusiasm are unreal! I guess that since I've been such a big Black Keys fan, I didn't want to accept that there was another blues based, two piece rock and roll outfit out there that could compare to the boys from ohio, and when it comes down to it, they shouldn't be compared to one another. White Stripes kinda kick ass and this video is a pretty righteous example of just how much. Hope you enjoy.
