During his show this past Wednesday, while he and his crew sorted a technical issue with his guitar, Jack White had a bit of a go at the completely overhyped Foo Fighters and laid into Rolling Stone magazine, in what he termed a ‘Kanye West-esque rant’. He went on for almost four minutes, criticising the Foo Fighters for their use of a second guitar player – a cover for any possible mistakes, essentially accusing them of an unauthentic performance, before laying into Rolling Stone and their web content with comments like “brought to you by the Kardashian family” and “15 outfits that will blow your mind that Taylor Swift wore this month”. Take a listen below, because it’s fucking beautiful. Long live Jack White.
PS. I’m now quite ready to receive hate from the vanilla fans of the Foos. Let it rain down on me you boring bastards.
