I personally love it when really, really talented musicians get together to simply make music. Not in the fake Chris Brown and Rhianna type of way, where their individual record labels plot their takeover of the pop charts by pairing two superstars.
But in the way where Kanye West, TI, Lil Wayne and Jay Z got together to make “Swagger Like Us” – something that’s meant to blow the minds of hip-hop fans, and not be turned over for a Double-Mint commercial.
Well, Jack White is about as pure of a musician as I’ve seen, and he seems to truly love the music he makes – not making money off of it – but simply producing sound that’s meant to make many, many people feel really good.
Along with The White Stripes, White co-headlines The Raconteurs – a fantastic rock n roll band I’d seriously advise you to listen to.
Outside of his two bands, White also loves to collaborate with other artists.
Many of which, you may not expect. For example, White joined forces with Alicia Keys to make the theme for the latest James Bond film, and also recently teamed up with Adele to make a song.
“I was well annoyed with him [White] because we’d arranged studio time together but then he had to go and record the James Bond theme tune,” Adele told the Daily Star. “But we ended up doing some stuff in London. He’s a good laugh and I’d like to do more.”
Adele’s history with White is rather extensive – they worked on this song, and she also did her own version of The Racounteurs “Many Shades of Black,” which you can hear on the deluxe version of “19″ in April. For those of you who haven’t heard The Raconteurs, check out this video…
