Happy 35th Birthday…

July 9th, 2010

Jack White is a multi-instrumental musician who founded the White Stripes with then wife (whom he now calls his sister) Meg White.

tintype_whiteHe is, admittedly, eccentric with possibly, maybe a touch of the genius.

It’s not, however, for his music that At Home in Hespeler celebrates Jack White today. It’s for a moment in time, caught on film.

In the fabulous guitarist documentary, It Might Get Loud, Jack White, Jimmy Page and The Edge get together. Early in the movie Jack White is talking, saying he thinks special effects are a cheat, a lazy approach to guitar playing. Meanwhile, they are showing The Edge’s special effects being brought onto the soundstage ahead of the guitarists summit – on a forklift truck.

Too funny.

So Happy 35th Birthday Jack White, for the finest example of how not to respect your elders I’ve ever seen.

Birthday Wishes , , , ,

    Yeah I’ve seen this before good stuff and worth watching. At the end they get a good jam together and it doesn’t look contrived either.

    Yea, they do The Weight. Page complaining he can’t sing, and looking sooo uncomfortable when he does, even if it’s only the harmony on the chorus.

    Another cool scene when the credits are rolling, and Page is showing his theremin. The Edge says, “Oh my God. Is that a real theremin?”
