If you’re holding out for new White Stripes music, things aren’t looking too rosy. But these days Jack White devotees looking for nostalgia are in luck. Jack’s over a year removed from touring behind 2014’s Lazaretto and he’s shifted his focus to a variety of other projects -- among them a career-spanning acoustic album, and to go with it, he’s surprise-shared a rarity-filled timeline on his web site.
The interactive experience features 26 dates along White’s career, beginning in Oct. 1998. Each date contains media including videos of live performances, old gig posters and promotional shots. For instance, the 1998 signpost has some old photos of Jack and Meg White and a shot of the 7“ for “Sugar Never Tasted So Good,” along with the note that Jack often claimed he’d license the song to companies like NutraSweet and Splenda. Jack White, you guys.
