Jack White – Lazaretto

I just saw this video from Jack White‘s new album Lazaretto. I like the video, but I’m not that impressed by his music any more. I used to love The Raconteurs but maybe that’s what’s missing, the influence of Brendan Benson and the others. At least he is still playing his Randy Parson guitar.

Randy Parsons is an awesome luthier, he is the man behind Jack White’s guitars. I’ve been reading a bit about him and he seems to have a really nice approach to guitar building. Here is a nice article from Premier Guitar.
