Jack White
After many a side project—the Raconteurs, the Dead Weather, recording with Wanda Jackson—Jack White III goes it alone, playing behind a phenomenal solo album, Blunderbuss, and encouraging music critics to use words like corruscating, which they haven't since the days of the White Stripes. Thank you, sir!
