And with his solo adventure just beginning Jack White once again reminds anyone who was still in doubt why this unique musical pioneer has attracted the enormous critical and commercial success he has achieved so far.
Jack White – The Lowdown is the ultimate insight into the life and times of Detroit’s favourite son.
