White does have a distinctly different, and more personal, connection to the past than most, though. He has made records or appeared with Neil Young, Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones, Jimmy Page, Wanda Jackson and Loretta Lynn. "I've worked with a lot of people in their 70s and 80s who have had incredible careers. I've been lucky with that," he says.
Jack White has an exquisite case of the jitters. The former White Stripes frontman shows Little Willie John cover "I'm Shakin'," the latest single from solo debut 'Blunderbuss'. It takes a supremely road-tested rocker to convey nervousness so persuasively.
