So, when times are slow in White Stripes-land, you either get no news, or you get off the wall, obscure stuff. Today, you get obscure. It appears the actor and former boyfriend of Angelina Jolie is a big fan of Jack and the White Stripes. Billy Bob was interviewed recently and had this to say:|
"G: Who else do you think is doing good work?
T: I respect Jack White (of the White Stripes) a lot because he respects the history of music. The fact that he knows where it comes from - that's one of the most important things. He's listening to Billie Holiday. A lot of kids - 20, 19 - they think a classic rock band is Cinderella. They don't go back in history enough, and their music is not coming from a place of knowledge."
