Jack White Covered The Beatles' "Mother Nature's Son" at The White House








But maybe you already knew that since it's been around the internet block for about 18 hours now. Who knows! The first time we heard the White Stripes, it was ten years ago and we were in a black Toyota Celica somewhere between Albuquerque and Cuba, New Mexico. A close friend of ours had come back from college and he wouldn't stop talking about them and honestly, after one listen, we remember only having the following to volunteer: "This sounds a lot like The Beatles." Uh, for years, looking back at that statement has felt like a burr in our proverbial nerd saddle. But you know what? In watching the above video of White cover the White Album cut, all the shame and embarrassment has melted away. It was the voice. He's got it. He always has.
