15 May 2013 – The White Stripes – The Denial Twist & The Hardest Button To Button – over on Wicked Guilty Pleasures

I know my co-writer Scott would never, ever, ever write about the White Stripes.  He isn’t a fan.  This is quite possibly our biggest musical disagreement, because I am a big fan.  Of course, I am a big fan of duos of all kinds – I’ve featured several of them on this blog.

This is my favorite song by them.  It’s full of raw emotion and tells a great story.  And, with just a piano and drums, they make a lot of beautiful noise.

Here’s an early great tune by the duo.  Jack went with guitar on this song, which is the right choice.  His multi-instrumental prowess are part of what made this band great.  The story of this song, though, is the bad-ass drumming by Meg White, who doesn’t get enough credit for what she did with that group.  Truly, one of the greatest drummers I have ever heard.

Also, Jack has my hair from 1989.
