Biography

Musically rooted in blues, punk, and classic rock, Jack White captivated audiences worldwide with his undeniable talent and showmanship. As one-half of chart-topping band the White Stripes, White helped change the landscape of alternative rock music with the band's critically acclaimed and commercially successful singles "Fell in Love with a Girl" (2001) and "Seven Nation Army" (2003). Along with musical partner -- and one-time wife -- Meg White, White created an innovative, genre-bending sound mixed with the band's eccentric red-and-white stage outfits, and dazzling live performances. Throughout his career, White also produced music for other artists, acted in films like the Academy Award-winning Civil War drama "Cold Mountain" (2003), and fronted other music groups like The Raconteurs, doing all of it with the same amount of passion and dedication. After releasing a handful of albums and winning several Grammy Awards, the White Stripes announced they had officially ended in 2011. The band's split marked the end of an era for White's illustrious career, yet it also signified his well-deserved legacy as one of the most brilliant artists and dynamic performers in modern rock history.
