He showed you what the riff was to elevation...you tell me.
Sounds like Toto pulled the curtain on the great and powerful Edge.

I think the Edge and Jack White make an interesting comparison because they have guitar styles that are diametric in approach. Jack wants his playing to sound like he had no time to rehearse for the gig, precises timing isn't his main concern and a mis-step only adds to the that idea. While the Edge takes the opposite and timing is importatnt to him, one mistake is repeat over by his echo pedal....

Jack White is a great musician.

As for the Jack White/Edge comparison, Jack White is REALLY good at putting a powerful emotion into music. He does this by making the parts relatively simple, and it allows the emotion to swell and fill the music. The Edge is on the mechanical side. He uses the effects to define his style. Then Jimmy Page, the other guitarist in "It Might Get Loud", who uses higher level technique as his thing. Lol, that was a great movie.

And Jack has a huge collection of early delta blues music!
I don't think Kurt Cobain is legendary solely for his technical ability on guitar.

I think Jacks bigger than Cobain. A very small slice of the populace got to experience Cobain when he mattered. his rise was quick, his time on top was short, he wasn't accessible to the mainstream, and didn't work much with other artists. (****ing Courtney Love doesn't count as work, nor is she an artist).

Give me Hole two times to Sunday before Jack White. Maybe tell Meg to take some drumming lessons too, I think she wore that one beat out.

White Stripes are one avenue. All of his other drummers aren't nearly as simplistic and Courtney Love can't get the needle out of her arm long enough to address her lack of talent, or her crabs.

Yet another artist that just doesn't register with me. He certainly hits the right spots to create music that reaches the masses. The Raconteurs drummer is better then Meg? Doesn't sound like it. Courtney Love is into pills now, but her discography is actually quite a good listen thanks to Kurt's writing ability. The crabs are another story, I think shes moved onto lobsters now.

So we can agree that the problem is you?

Oh absolutely, one guy who can't appreciate the godlike ability of Jack White or millions who reap the benefits of his aesthetically pleasing bluesy rock riff-dom.
