Jack White can easily be considered one of the most influential people in the current rock n’ roll scene. Starting with The White Stripes, he really revived a raw, bluesy-rock sound that hit the mainstream in the best way. A bit odd and eccentric, Jack White is ahead of the curve when it comes to music, and this upcoming solo album is set to be a smash hit.
