A must read from RollingStone.com:|
"The Rolling Stone editors picked eight stars from Bruce and Beyonce to Radiohead and U2 who not only made the best music but also led the way as Artists of the Decade in our decade-end issue. Here's more of our conversation with Jack White.
RS: At the beginning of this decade, you had just released the second White Stripes album what were your goals and expectations for yourself as an artist at that point?
JW: A hundred years had passed since people could sort of determine the beginning of the blues, and there was an illusion in my head that a new blues was emerging in the scene that we were from that bands like the White Stripes and the Soledad Brothers and people like that that were bringing a new take on the blues. That was enough to compel me to keep going and going and going, but I had no illusions at all about the mainstream ever thinking it was interesting."
Jack provides some great insight into the future in this interview. Check the rest of the interview out here.
