What I'm listening to: The Party Ain't Over by Wanda Jackson and Jack White. It's so retro, so classic rock. A woman who is in her 70s still rocking with this mix of old school and modern rock. And I turn to Neil Young and Santana when I need peace.

Jack and Meg White have won fame and acclaim as musical alchemists capable of turning their guitar and drum kit into something sounding akin to a six-piece rock beast.

Change of key for White Stripes singer

The Raconteurs is a new band, but its frontman is no stranger to music fans. Describing themselves as a new band made up of old friends, the quartet is led by Jack White from the White Stripes musician friend Brendan Benson, along with Jack Lawrence and Patrick Keeler from The Greenhornes.

I'm with the band

JACK WHITE SOUNDS like a man reborn. And well he might. The more famous half of the White Stripes has a new wife, English model Karen Elson, a new daughter - Scarlett, born one month ago in Tennessee - and a new band, the Raconteurs, formed with three long-time friends who are established, if somewhat less well known, musicians.

Devilishly eccentric

If you're seeking an unusual listening experience, look no further than the White Stripes' new album.

Get Behind Me Satan is crammed with eccentric tunes and cryptic lyrics. The duo have taken an array of music styles and blended them into their own unique brand of sound.
