The Cure for What Ails Ya



Carrying me through this recent bout of illness has been my growing obsession with The White Stripes and it's creepily attractive front man, Jack White. Nothing like blues flavored guitar licks to bring a body back from the dead.

I'd classify Jack as a guitar god at this point even though I know that's a term general reserved for some stale and crusty relic of the motohead generation.

I'd give mad props to Jimi Hendrix and Lenny Kravitz....got love for Vernon Reid....and Radiohead for producing that massive 'chunk' in the song 'Creep'. It's interesting because normally, I go all gooey for piano players...which Jack is also..hmm.
