Default Jack White bashes Dave/Pat/the Foos

Quote:
White then turned his attention to the Foo Fighters, noting a "second guitar player playing the same parts I play so in case I make a mistake, he's still playing it for you" before beginning his attack on Rolling Stone.

LOL



(Srry, can't edit the thread title anymore... Upon reading it the first time it felt to me like it was targeted to Pat as if he's some kind of back-up guitarist. I agree it was more likely targeted to the whole band and maybe also other bands with a similar composition)

Frankly, his performances would be better if he had someone to double the drum parts.

Not that I care about what he said but I think your title is a little misleading.
If anything his problem isn't Pat, but what he sees as the other guitar players shortcomings and need to have Pat there.

Eh, it amounts to the same thing. I definitely wouldn't want to be referred to as a "back-up guitarist".

He is clearly put out he wasn't asked to be in sonic highways but Dan Auerbach was.
I like Jack and I'm not so sure that his point wasn't to back up the part that rolling stone would of course use it as gossip to make a headline.

I think it is fairly squarely aimed at Dave, rather than either Shifty or Pat? The inference being that Pat is there to cover for Dave whilst he is being "the frontman"

It seems to me that he's basically saying that Pat is nothing but a back up guitarist for Dave which shows his completely ignorance towards having any sort of clue who Pat is, the fact that he was in the Germs and Nirvana and Foo Fighters early and current days along with doing various other projects you would have thought that an international rock star like Jack White would recognise his peers...

But then from what I've heard and read and seen about Jack White, none of this surprises me

He is partially right. In old songs that were purposly written for 2 guitars, Pat really usually just fills the sound for Dave. But the newer ones, definitely Wasting Light, that's a very different story. These are composed around 3 properly used guitars. White is completely wrong that it has anything to do with live perfomnace per se. It's all about songwriting - and I hope nobody thinks you should rewrite or scrap old songs when one guitarist is added.

Really don't get why such a big deal is being made of this (not here, just social media/the press in general). It was a tame jab that I'm sure none of the band members would ever take actual offence at. The stuff I've seen some people post in reaction is just baffling, anyone would think he said Foo Fighters murder kittens.

And Jack White plays mean guitar
but ...
1 He's no Shifty, obvsly
2 He's no Pat Smear
n
3 He's no Dave Grohl - who not only plays a mean guitar too, but is one of the premier musicians and songwriters,
and yes Bandleaders of all time
(Take any group or arrangement he'll fit right in and improve it-Nirvana, FFs, Queens of the Stone Age, Them Crooked Vultures, Sound City Players,
Sirvana, you name it-
it's embarrassing to Mr.White to have to mention all this but Foo Fighters post was a witty retort)

Most important, no way shape or form anyone post Zeppelin or Nirvana circa Pat Smear era gonna ever compete with that Foo Fighters 3 guitar attack,
not Black Keys, White, Pearl Jam, not anybody

and that's all folks,
just a little Foo envy!

Rock On Rock On Rock Hard!

I never liked Jack White, massively over rated, but I do like kittens.
