Legal name: John Anthony Gillis


Jack White (born John Anthony Gillis; July 9, 1975) is an American musician, designer, director, writer, and actor. He is most well-known as the frontman of the band The White Stripes, though he has been in several bands and collaborated with various artists. On April 24, 2012, White released his debut solo album, Blunderbuss, which received wide critical acclaim. His second studio album, Lazaretto, was released on June 10, 2014.

White has enjoyed both critical and popular success. He has won eight Grammy Awards and both of his solo albums have reached number on the Billboard charts. Rolling Stone ranked him number 70 on its 2010 list of "The 100 Greatest Guitarists". In 2011, David Fricke's 2011 list ranked him at #17. In 2006, White became a founding member of the rock band the Raconteurs, and in 2009 helped form and played drums for his third commercially successful group, the Dead Weather. He is a board member of the Library of Congress' National Recording Preservation Foundation, a music historian, collector and philanthropist, as well as an advocate for analog technology and recording techniques.

White is intensely private and has has been known to create misdirection about his personal life; he is sometimes called "eccentric." He has been married and divorced twice—once from his White Stripe bandmate Meg White, and later to the model (and mother of his children) Karen Elson. He has a daughter (Scarlett) and son (Henry). He has been a party in public conflicts with several other musicians, particularly from his hometown of Detroit, Michigan. He currently resides in Nashville, Tennessee.
