Jack White (born John Anthony Gillis) is a Detroit born musician best know for his work in Garage Blues band The White Stripes. He bounced around bands during the Garage Rock-Revival in the late '90's before forming the White Stripes with his then wife, Meg White (he took her last name). Before their eponymous debut was released, Jack and Meg divorced, but the band stayed together. The White Stripes officially disbanded in 2011 after having been inactive since 2009. In 2005, White formed a band called The Raconteurs with Brendan Benson and members of the Greenhornes. In 2009, he formed The Dead Weather with Alison Mosshart (of the Kills and Discount fame). White released his first solo album Blunderbuss in 2012, and his second Lazaretto in 2014.

He married Karen Elson in 2005 and had two children together, but divorced in 2011.

He's known for his Hair-Trigger Temper and his DIY ethic. He currently runs Third Man Records in Nashville, TN where he records, produces and distributes records for other artists.
