July 9: Jack White was born in 1975 – Happy 40th birthday!


Happy Birthday, Jack White!

Jack White (né Gillis), often credited as Jack White III, singer, songwriter, record producer, multi-instrumentalist and occasional actor. He was best known as the guitarist, pianist and lead vocalist of The White Stripes until they split in February 2011, as well as a member of The Raconteurs and The Dead Weather. He has recorded two albums as a solo artist, Blunderbuss (number 4 on our year-end list 2012) and this year’s wonderful, Lazaretto.
