Jack White might just be the last person on the planet under 35 who actually understands what it means to be a rock star. Here's a snippet from an article that ran in the New York Times on Sunday:
âEverything from your haircut to your clothes to the type of instrument you play to the melody of a song to the rhythm â theyâre all tricks to get people to pay attention to the story,â [White] said.
âIf you just stood up in a crowd and said your story â âI came home, and this girl I was dating wasnât there, and I was wondering where she wasâ â itâs not interesting,â he said. âBut give it a melody, give it a beat, build it all the way up to a haircut. Now people pay attention.â
