The White Stripes were one of the breakout bands of the early 2000s ‘rock revival’ and reintroduced a sense of mystery and panache to the staid indie rock scene of the era. But that was only the beginning for singer-guitarist Jack White. From his humble origins in the fabled Detroit garage rock scene to his ongoing solo career, via The White Stripes and his other bands – The Raconteurs and The Dead Weather – Jack White has forged an extensive and eclectic body of work. 

Now, as the head of his own record label, he has achieved what most musicians dream of: the freedom to follow his idiosyncratic muse where it takes him, regardless of the whims of the record industry or popular taste. His music takes in a variety of quirky styles, but he remains connected to the traditions of American roots music. 

This is the first book that takes in the entire scope of Jack White’s career: his bands, his solo work and his music with other artists. By going through his discography track-by-track, this book will argue that Jack White is one of the great artists of the modern age. Perhaps, in fact, the last great rock star.

The book recounts their many afterlives, including the posthumous RIP, the story behind the ‘counterfeit’ Zombies, their first reunion with the album New World and everything in between hidden in the depths of the band’s complex history, and considers how their later incarnation has sustained success more effectively than the original line-up. Drawing on both archive interviews and new conversations with Argent and Blunstone to mark the release of The Zombies’ latest album – the critically acclaimed Different Game – this book proves why The Zombies not only have an immortal back catalogue but are also still making vital music today.

The Author

Emma Stott missed out on the 1960s and the 1970s and she still isn’t over it, so writing about the greatest decades in rock music helps with her loss. She also writes about literature and education, being an English teacher by day in Manchester, UK, where she forbids any ‘dark sarcasm’ in her classroom.
