The Dead Weather

One of the most mesmerizing performances that I have ever experienced was The White Stripes at the Roxy in Boston. This duo of guitar and drums plus vocals hypnotized the room with a sound so full and rich that it was hard to believe that there were just two people on stage. Jack White, the guitarist and singer, has proven to be one of the great futurists of rock, exploring territories yet uncovered. From The White Stripes to The Raconteurs to The Dead Weather, his music is always fascinating and frequently transcendent. The Dead Weather consisting of Jack, playing drums on this project, along with Alison Mosshart (of The Kills and Discount) on lead vocals, Jack Lawrence (of The Raconteurs and The Greenhornes) on bass, and Dean Fertita (of Queens of the Stone Age) on guitar have just released “Die By the Drop” from their forthcoming album Sea of Cowards.
