Reasons why Jack White rocks:
- He just sold 40,000 vinyl copies of his new LP Lazaretto in its FIRST week of sales (it came out June 10th). He just beat the record set by Pearl Jam in 1994 when they sold 34,000 vinyl copies of Vitalogy.
- He’s bringing back vinyl for the masses. Lazaretto was #1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart (138,000 units sold total) – President of the Music Business Association, James Donio, says “The album’s success “proves there is an appetite for physical formats, especially for artists who go the extra mile to offer something truly unique..”
- He’s full of surprises. The 12″ version of Lazaretto has some special features like the ability to project a hologram when it spins.
- He has his own ICE CREAM FLAVOUR. An Australian Gelato chain (Gelato Messina) just announced their Jack N’ White flavour complete with caramelized white chocolate, pecans, fudge, and a shot of Jack Daniels whiskey. It’s only available for one-week in Australia…any London businesses want to step up here?
