Jack White of the White Stripes, top five guitarist of all time. Easily.
"I want to be part of the resurgence of things that are tangible, beautiful and soulful, rather than just give in to the digital age. But when I talk to people about this they just say, 'Yeah, I know what you mean,' and stare at their mobiles." - Jack White
Jack White: Blunderbuss – review
Jack White - White Stripes, Raconteurs, Dead Weather and solo - the only true rock star of my generation...
White does have a distinctly different, and more personal, connection to the past than most, though. He has made records or appeared with Neil Young, Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones, Jimmy Page, Wanda Jackson and Loretta Lynn. "I've worked with a lot of people in their 70s and 80s who have had incredible careers. I've been lucky with that," he says.
