Jack White "Just One Drink" Tonight Show Web Exclusive 6.9.2014
The interview starts with Jimmy Fallon and Jack White catching up like old friends, talking about White's mom backstage. Then they move on to Neil Young's performance on The Tonight Show last month, and the special features in the ultra deluxe version of the Lazaretto LP. Jimmy also asks about the liner notes to Lazaretto, which thank Bob Dylan, Neil Young, and (of course) food.
As for the performances, "Lazaretto" and "Just One Drink" show a good representation of what Jack White's style has evolved into at this point in his career. "Lazaretto" is a hard rocker built around a funky riff, and "Just One Drink" is an old time country tune with modern touches. Although White plays a Gretsch guitar in the video for "Lazaretto," he's playing a custom Fender Telecaster during this performance. White is a great live performer because of the energy he brings to the stage. It's a lot of fun watching him move around and engage with his accompanying musicians.
