Jack White made his name as the guitarist and singer of blues-tinged rock duo The White Stripes. During hiatuses with that band (the Stripes announced their official breakup in February 2011), he seemingly indulged in every opportunity to stretch his musical legs, collaborating with artists ranging from Bob Dylan to Beck to Alicia Keys. In 2005, he teamed up with solo artist Brendan Benson and two members of the Greenhornes to form The Raconteurs, with whom he released two acclaimed albums. But his most celebrated post-Stripes role has been as drummer for Dead Weather, fronted by The Kills’ Alison Mosshart. White has also established himself as a burgeoning record mogul with his Third Man Records. —Jeff Royer
