Default Jack White

I think it was time to start a thread on Jack White, Meg's brother.

Jack has been playing the drums for the band The Dead Weather, some type of rock alternative. His drumming skills are growing up while fitting perfect for TDW songs with a Bonham's slightly touch. By the way, He is a John Bonham follower like most of us.

Comments? input?.........I'm waiting on you Polly......1 - 2 - 3 - 4.....bang! boom!

Thanks,

Jack isn't Meg's brother, they've been married. (Or my information is wrong.)

I didn't know Jack played the drums as well. Cool! I wonder what Meg's up to lately..

I'm not sure his ability behind a kit compare to his ability with a guitar (considering he's one of the the greats). Though he's been playing drums since childhood. His reason for taking up drums at a young age was that "everyone could play guitar." Also, Lex is right, he and Meg are not related, they were married.

I would guess that Meg is somewhere perfecting her basic rock beat for the White Stripes reunion.

In plain words, they are (Ex's). It sounds like news media to me at all! Well, I don't pretend to understand the workings of journalistic mind.

Years ago, Jack used to play in the band Goober and the Peas around Detroit.

Dean Fertita from Dead Weather is from the Detroit area also, and played in a few bands I knew.
He was also in the band Reindance with some of my friends back around "89-'90-ish. That band was on the first Real World on MTV because the singer Andre was a cast member (he said the show was soooo fake, and never participated in anything other than "the show"). It doesn't show on any wiki-type thing though.

Dean also plays in QOTSA, and sometimes in Eagles of Death Metal, but he didn't play with Eagles when my band did a show with them (but Joey Castillo was the drummer, and a very cool guy).

I like Jack's drumming style in DW, & I like the set up he's got.
A 16" snare might be a little something to get used to though haha!

Something that Jack mentions in the White Stripes' "Under Great White Northern Lights" is how when he plays his guitar, he is constantly fighting with it. His guitar will go out of tune very quickly, even multiple times within a song, so he has to re-tune and battle with that as he plays. Also, if he has to go from a keyboard to the piano he'll purposely put it farther than is comfortable for him to jump from one instrument to the next, to make himself push for it.

I wouldn't doubt that he maintains that same mentality while playing drums as well, making himself reach for things.

Does someone knows what cymbal set up is he currently using? I know they are Paiste 2002, but don't know the sizes.

2002 24" ride, and switching of between a second 24--might be the 24" crash (and not a second "ride") and a 16 for the "crash".
16" hi hats.

These people get so much publicity on this forum they really should be paying for it.

And Tony Williams barely rates a mention.

'tis a strange phenomenon .
