"The Vault" can suck my balls, and until Jack picks his guitar back up, so can he.

Friend of mine lives in Nashville befriended a guy who works at the Third Man store, she said some of the songs on the mono mix sounds like different versions from the regular album. That'll make the crazy collectors crazier. If that's possible.

How many bands is this greedy White dude going to form? I'm still waiting for the guy from the Von Bondies that he beat the shit out of to hire some flunkies to extract revenge. He really laid a beating on that poor guy.

"'The Vault' can suck my balls, and until Jack picks his guitar back up, so can he."

Watch out. You know what happens when Jack gets mad. He'll find you and lay a smackdown on you.
He's a tough guy from Detroit.

I'd say if any album deserves to be stolen, it's this one. But so far, no leaks. Is that because of Jack's reputation? He'll beat the snot out of anyone he suspects of leaking a copy of this latest platter of poo.

But how deck are The Dead Weather?

Posted by Anonymous | July 8, 2009 6:21 PM

I gave in and joined the Vault, and its actually pretty good bang for your buck... JW came in on a live video feed into one of the chat rooms and performed a solo version of the Hank Williams song "Tennessee Border." There's a lot of cool things like this that has happened and will happen every day, plus all the special goods they're mailing out.

Anyway, even for someone who is a casual fan, its a pretty cool thing. If you have interest and are willing to spend a little, you should give it a go.

When Jack plays a song by Hank III, I'll be impressed.

Posted by Anonymous | July 8, 2009 6:35 PM

Jack disappeared up his own arsehole a long time ago, he's all about ego and power and control now.
Notice no leaks of the Whorehouse album. Fear will do that -- everyone with access is scared of Jack and his legendary temper.

Who would win a fight between Jack White and Hank Williams III? Hank is kinda skinny, but I'll bet he's tough.

Do you get charged $60 right away or $20 each month......

?
Hank would win. And so would the influence of Thee Headcoats on Jack.

i don't understand why he feels the need to have all of these side projects going on, especially since they all sound the same.

Posted by Anonymous | July 9, 2009 9:13 AM

lol at 6:24. intern?

I agree Hank III will kick Jack's ass. And he needs his ass kicked.

JW sucks JL dick in the summer time.

I used to listen to the White Stripes until Jack White began to destroy original rock n' roll music with these side projects. Yes you read it right, DESTROY rock. Have people honestly never listened to the Greenhornes or the Kills - both these bands ran circles around White's music until he dismantled them into White Stripes #2 the Raconteurs and White Stripes #3 the Dead Weather. THIS MUSIC IS INDISTINGUISHABLE FROM WHITE'S PREVIOUS RECORDINGS SO WHY DOES HE INSIST ON DRAGGING REAL TALENT INTO HIS BERMUDA TRIANGLE OF ROCK FEATURING AVERAGE SONGWRITING AND NOW-TIRED GUITAR LICKS???

If I had the know-how I would make an anti-Dead Weather website or start a web-based petition to bring back the wonderful Kills.

Posted by Amos Briscoe | February 24, 2010 9:25 PM

Fuck the Kills, bring back the White Stripes. Mosshart sucks balls. That is all.
