"Jack White, buddies form the Raconteurs"?
White, remember, doesn't like the term "side project" because "side project usually means some flippant thing - you're not even paying too much attention to it."
But let's let his pal Patrick Keeler describe the recording process. "There was no concept, no ideas, no rules, no script, nothing - we just went in blind," says Keeler. A few days later, and the whole thing was over.
Maybe musicians who work for years on a single album just need different friends!
