Music’s main man
JACK WHITE Royal Hospital, Kilmainham Dublin Thurs 6.30pm ¤44.05 ticketmaster.ie
If rock music has a Renaissance Man (and not just someone who is pompously busy with anything and everything), it’s Jack White. He is also, however, something possibly far more important than a justifiably revered guitarist.
White is a bona fide music historian and collector, as well as an advocate for what he sees as the right type of recording techniques. Through his recent work with Neil Young (who doesn’t collaborate with just any musician) and his production work for and mentoring of the likes of Loretta Lynn and Wanda Jackson, White has made it quite clear that he’s in the game only for the music.
With a superb second solo album ( Lazaretto) just released, you can safely assume that at least half a dozen tunes from that record will be played here. But let us not forget White’s other impressive back catalogue work, which includes rifftastic songs aplenty from The Dead Weather, The Raconteurs and The White Stripes.
