12.17.2009 // WELCOME TO THE NEW & IMPROVED SITE!

 

If you are a frequent visitor to this website, you will notice things look a little different. That's because the site has been updated or tweaked a bit. Let's call it whitestripes.net version 1.5. This website was starting to feel old, and outdated. It's pretty much been the same since 2002! I've always really liked the look and layout so instead of blowing the site up and starting over it's been given a small face life. A favorite feature of mine that has been added is the ability for you, the user to upload your fan artwork directly to me from this page. Also, I plan to have a larger picture database as I did in the past. You can now contact me directly via the (drumroll) contact page. I'm going to be updating the links page this weekend with new, band relevant links, so if you know of any links that fit in the current link categories email me via the contact page.

I must send a huge thank you to the person who made these changes possible. Ryan, who runs the best Dead Weather fan site on the 'net, was kind enough to help me out. He did all the dirty work behind the scenes. I've been wanting to update the back end of this site for a long time now, and I am grateful to him for helping me with that. The changes he made has made updating certain pages of this website a breeze. Make sure you visit his Dead Weather site and follow him on Twitter.

So, have a look around and jump into the Little Room. Would love your feedback.

12.01.2009 // TURN UP THE CHRISTMAS TUNES

 

It's that time of the year again, put on your most idiotic looking Christmas sweater, and blast your favorite Christmas songs. SFWeekly.com has compiled their Eight Christmas Songs Worth Saving From The Fire. Jack and Meg's cover of the Laughing Hyenas "Candy Cane Children" made the list:

"Yes, it sounds like every other White Stripes tune from this era, but this 2002 single is actually a cover of a cult '80s entry by Laughing Hyenas. Centered on Jack's gnashing guitar and Meg's numbing thump, its lyrics are be seedy enough to banish any thoughts of sugarplum fairies."

Check out the complete article here to stream the song and see the remaining seven.

If you haven't touched down in the Little Room messageboard for awhile, why not stop in and have a look. Five new skins were recently designed for the messageboard, courtesy of Third Man Records! If you are a member of the Third Man vault, then the new look will be very familiar.

A new version of this website is in the pipeline as well and should be up and running soon. Smaller changes and tweaks are being made that I think you all will appreciate.

NewsOK.com is reporting Jack White is set to produce Wanda "The Queen of Rockabilly" Jackson's new album:

" Wanda Jackson, the “Queen of Rockabilly” and “First Lady of Rock ‘n’ Roll,” was en route to Nashville, Tenn., on Friday to meet in a recording studio with alternative rock star Jack White.

Jackson is set to record a new album with White as the producer. They first will record a single for digital release before completing an album.

“One of the biggest stars on the planet I guess right now,” she said of White during her phone interview with Gene.

A singer-songwriter, pianist, guitarist, multi-instrumentalist and producer, White is one-half of the garage rock revivalist duo The White Stripes, which he founded in 1997 with then-wife Meg White. He also leads two other alternative rock bands, the Raconteurs and the Dead Weather."
