Jack White

First Look

Esquire's January issue is our music special, so who better to lead the charge than the mighty Jack White. 

He's been one of music's most fascinating figures ever since achieving global success with The White Stripes. Now, as a solo artist, record producer, label boss, concert impresario (and Esquire cover star) Jack White explains how he’s remade himself as the saviour of rock’n’roll.

Amongst other things, the fiercely opinionated White gives his take on Twitter (not keen), the state of modern celebrity (also not keen) and Lady Gaga (even less keen). “I don’t think she lives it because it’s all artifice," says White of Gaga. "It’s all image with no meaning behind it. You can’t sink your teeth into it. It’s a sound bite. It’s very of this age, because that’s what people want.”
