Jack White Has Declared ‘Music Sacred’!
Despite what his label pretends, Jack White has declared music sacred because he is a pompous royalty pissed off that the system allows kids to get his music for free. He is angry that Tidal is going to sink, because why would anyone pick Tidal over Spotify or YouTube when you can use these two for free?
Jay Z Launches Tidal, His New Streaming Service
Jay Z recently purchased the streaming service for some $56 million and he wants to make it as a competitor to Spotify, or Rdio.

Best Of 2015: Best Concerts Through January 31st, 2015
I thought these indie rockers from Cincinatti were great at the time and I thought they were greater when I thought back on it. Essentially, they are a midwestern Shellshag who didn’t make it through the long run as a couple have lived to explain the pitfalls and disasters of romantic love and this night played em down to the ground.
Jack White At Madison Square Garden, Friday, January 30th, Reviewed
White keeps on claiming a luddite’s worship of the analog but really he just swaps one set of tools for another. He is a complete 21st century weirdo. A creeped out. cold as ice, asshole. How can’t you love a show like that?

Jack White Performs Three Hour Set In Chicago (About as Long As The Last Three Times I Saw him Combined)
Lazaretto is one of his worst works to date, and three hours of his metallic shredding woulda had me ready to kill him among others. below you’ll find his cover of “Manic Depression” -just what the world needed. White has worn out all the good will his radio city residency had with me and then some
We Review Rolling Stone's Playlist
Rolling Stone magazine has their latest Playlist in their newest issue, seven songs they’ve recommended to us jackjills for our perusal.

One More Time! Jack White Is A Jerk- Suddenly Apologizes
He also claims he “personally championed” Meg White for 15 years, but then apologized, took everything back, and wrote a formal letter saying sorry with his tail between his legs. The man’s grown into a bitter cow who’s too busy falling in love with his own work to respect anyone else. I’m, very unfortunately, disgusted.
US Top 10 Albums 6-27-14
As bad as Lazeretto is, the vinyl sounds awesome: it plays backwards and forwards, there is a holagram of an angel, alternative songs depending on where you put the needle down. The result? The vinyl alone sold an astonishing 40,000 copies and vinyl alone? White would have been at # 4 on the charts. Meanwhile, that country album? Painfully bad.
No Apologies, Whats Up With The Rockers Being So Sorry?
So now Jack White issues this public apology for bad behavior and I cant help but wonder why he is being such a pussy. C’mon already with the apologetic bullshit when we all know it was meant- and that it’s ok to feel as you do.
