This is the photo I never thought would ever be taken!  Jack White (formerly of The White Stripes) has produced a song for political satirist Stephen Colbert.  In a pop-up show situation, it was announced at the last moment that Stephen Colbert and the Black Belles along with Jack White would be performing the single “Charlene (I’m Over You).”  I couldn’t pass up a chance to see both geniuses in one location.  I approached the event with much trepidation; however, as I had a very bad experience meeting Jack White earlier this year that goes down in G history as one of my worst rock star encounters.  It was especially crushing for me because Jack is amazingly talented and I love his music so much.  As promised, Colbert and Jack White sang The Star Spangled Banner (click here to see a crystal clear video I shot) as well as “Charlene” and then they announced that Jack White and Stephen Colbert would be signing copies of the “Charlene” vinyl that was being sold at the Third Man Records truck parked at the venue.  There was no way I was going to miss this!  As I got my vinyl signed by Jack White, I asked for a photo and he happily obliged.  I didn’t bother telling him how our previous encounter scarred my life because I am all about turning the page.  Thanks again Jack!

You gotta love the spontenaity of New York.  This morning, June 24, 2011, I found out Jack White (formerly of the White Stripes) worked with Stephen Colbert for a new single (yes, that’s right).  It stands to reason then that Stephen Colbert and the Black Belles would perform the song.   Underneath a new section of the Highline park that just opened, Colbert and White sang the National Anthem (and a video will be coming soon, so stay tuned) and “Charlene (I’m Over You)” with the Black Belles.  Jack White’s Third Man Records truck was there and they were selling vinyl, of which they announced a signing after the performance!  Whoa!  Thanks Jack, Stephen and of course, The Black Belles.

The Dead Weather - Live Tonight At Terminal 5

The Dead Weather - Live Tonight At Terminal 5

Don’t forget that Jack White of the White Stripes’ new band The Dead Weather is playing tonight at Terminal 5. What do you think of their music?  They’ve sold out 1 night (so far) at Terminal 5, so people must be diggin’ it.  What do you think? Tell me everything. I just liked the poster.
