Well that's just the way things work for non-pop artists. Inside the alternative and rock spheres Jack White's certain getting major acclaim and album sales.

i like Jack white but im not a fan something about him doesn't quite cut it for me.
sometimes he impresses me with a song but its not enough to make me seek his music out

and honestly, the way he looks bothers me a little.. he looks like a Tim burton character..

(Meg white i luv, sooo cute~ <3)

i don't have anything bad to say about his music because it is not bad
he has some pretty sweet guitar riffs that go from the blues to straight up rock n roll it's just that his music doesn't move me..

He's not the most technical player, you don't have to tell me.
Huh? I could maybe agree with you if we're talking about his early tracks, but have you heard some of the insane solos he pulls of in Blunderbuss? I've seen him tear it up live in person, the dude can get technical, but often chooses simpler riffs purely for the fact that they're catchier. Seriously Blunderbuss has some really finger crunching solos.

Really? I think he is pretty hot (I have a small crush on him lol) but most importantly he seems like a really intelligent/sweet person. I LOVE his style and I hope he never changes.

He is a really great artist... I'm more into Soul/Funk artists but I do listen to some rock. I mostly listen to 70s/80s rock (when I do listen to it) but Ive been listening to alot of Jack White lately and he is like a modern genius lol Even his music videos are very entertaining and artistic...

This is ony of my favs at the moment and I love the video!

I get into a bunch of stuff created by JW, but for much of it, I can't embrace "out-of-tune-is-cool-if-you-have-the-right-attitude/energy-when-performing".

Jack White is somewhere around legend status, surely?

He's very led zep influenced, and that's the way to look at the music I think. It's pretty good.

Maybe he's not the best guitar player or vocalist in the Universe, but his vision of music and passion are outstanding, and that what makes him stand out from the crowd I guess

Wink Jack White...

...is one of my bands influences. Although we do not necessarily sound like him, i always enjoy watching him play guitar. Definitely an inspiring musician!

Jack White is out of date. He belongs in the 60s and 70s, in those halcyon years.
