I think it's about time this man gets his own thread. Jack White, is known for being the front man of The White Stripes, The Raconteurs (Or The Saboteurs in Oz) and The Dead Weather. He also owns his own record company known as Third Man Records. And now he is finally releasing his own first solo album, Blunderbuss. A highly anticipated and amazing album where Jack once again reminds us how much of a genius he is musically. And to top it all of he's also a decent actor, charming, a little bit quirky and in my opinion one of the most beautiful men on the planet.

So to get this ball and biscuit rolling, he's now starting to tour, who else is trying to get themselves to a show?

On some days he looks like egoraptor (like above) and on others, johnny depp. Ill never cease to be astounded I guess.

Also this mother plays the guitar. Good. I saw him with the Dead Weather in 2010, it was really cool. He had a nice hat...the man has a lot of nice hats.

Yes finally a thread for Jack! Yeah it's weird sometimes he does look like Johnny Depp. I can't wait for his solo album! Just a couple more days!

Yeah I've been streaming Bulnderbuss a lot the last few days. Stunning album, probably my favourite of 2012 so far. It is exactly the type of music I'm listening to at the moment. Got a lot of love for the continuing post-punk garage revival right now, there is a lot of creativity in the genre, Jack White just about embodies that creativity.

I love "I'm Shakin", I only found out the other day that it's a cover version of Little Willie John.

I was honestly a little disappointed to find that out. I kinda wanted it to be Jack to write such a cool song...though I have no idea how this makes the song any less awesome.

Sorry to be the bearer of the disappointing news! It's a cracking song, cover or not and I love how he says "And I'm nurvous".

I think my favourite track for now is "Hypocritical Kiss", that piano is to die for.

Remember how we were saying he looks like Johnny Depp? Well, in addition to this being legit news about Jack, it just so happens that Johnny Depp is in this film...

Yeah, it's all blocky and crappy looking...but I can at least hear it pretty well. Yknow, Ill be stoked when streaming gets really good....I remember watching the White Stripes on a stream when Icky Thump came out and it wasnt much worse than this...may have been better actually.

Just finished, the streaming was something shocking I think I got a grand total of 5 words from Seven Nation Army. But no matter, still great. Tickets for the Sydney show go on sale on Tuesday. Can't wait!

Yeah, the first half of the concert streaming quality was pretty good, it kinda went downhill from there. But such a good show.

On an album note; I've got to stop listening to it, but I'm so obsessed with the lyrics I can't help it. They're just so beautifully violent

I'm annoyed he didn't come to Brisbane (Where I live), I'm going to have to fly to Sydney, it's about an hour and half flight, or a 1 and half day drive. So yeah, gotta see how my bank account looks in July and go from there
