Rock Legends Pay Tribute to Jack White

jack-white-grammys-performanceAt just 38 years old, Jack White will be honored with a tribute album featuring his most noteworthy songs performed by many artists that he has cited as influences. The compilation album, which is set to be released on November 19th, features an impressive list of songs performed by rock and roll pioneers, including Gary U.S. Bonds, Joe Clay, and Bobby Vee. This album is an impressive show of respect for White’s multifaceted and incredibly successful career as a musician, producer, and songwriter.

The album, entitled Rockin’ Legends Pay Tribute to Jack White, will include songs from both White’s critically acclaimed debut solo album, Blunderbuss, and from his numerous, successful side projects, which include The White Stripes, The Raconteurs, and The Dead Weather. White’s work has had an undeniable influence on various genres of music, so it is no wonder why so many rock and roll, bluegrass, and rockabilly greats are eager to pay tribute to White’s contributions to music. In an interview with Rolling Stone, American rhythm and blues singer, Wanda Jackson, revealed that she was “very pleased with the way [the album] turned out, and I hope Jack approves of the job we did.”
