JACK WHITE FORMS NEW BAND WITH RODRIGUEZ, DENNIS COFFEY...

comment

...the members of Death and Mark Farner.

God, how many bands is this guy going to be in? Never let it be said, though, that Jack doesn't appreciate nor has he turned his back on this state's great musical legacy.

Very few details as of yet, beyond the press release we received earlier today, which also reports Jack has told Farner he has to keep his "damn shirt on!"

According to the release, the working title for the new band is White Coffey.

More on the project when we get them. You, dear readers, will be the first to know.
