Jack White, Entering Heaven Alive
Before the White Stripes got huge and I gave up, my old band played second out of four bands, opening for them at some small club. Jack White took a long moment during his set to thank every band that played—but us. I can trace a lifetime of bitter grievance from that moment on. Now, finally, after all these years, Jack White’s comeuppance is at hand...

Ah, fuck. Actually the new album is pretty good. Entering Heaven Alive. Damnit.

It still hurt my feelings though.—Z.L.
