Jack White's rider: standard or diva?

Hello! It appears Jack White rider leaked a few weeks ago, and it includes very very detailed requests (or should I say demands): no banana in the building, fresh homemade guacamole, medium cooked steak, etc. Dear Frank, is this level of details standard in headliner riders, or is he being a diva? I...

French rock, English wine?

Hi there! I have posted on this forum a few times and I am doing it again today with a new song I wrote and recorded by myself: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wpFfcKEyET0. As a Frenchman, I am curious to see if the famous quote "French rock is like English wine" is proven one more time. So just let...

Gibson Hummingbird

Hello Frank!

I was wondering why you switched from your custom-made guitar to what seems to be a Gibson Hummingbird? Is it sound-related?

Thanks! :)

Romain.

Re: Jimmy Kimmel "Live"

There was no playback I believe, as you can hear Tarrant playing the wrong note around 0:35 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cZ2LZ-ulQ5c), that happens though ;).

Re: The Gaslight Anthem

Really like this band! They often offer great live shows.

I remember the second time I saw them, the support was an artist named Frank Turner. :)

Fallon has a great voice (in studio though, he is often out of tune live). Also, their side project "The Horrible Crowes" is definitely worth listening.

The monster beneath my bed

Hi there! I very much like the idea of people sharing their lyrics and poems on this board. I am not too sure I should share mine, since English is not my first language, but let's try. I am actually very curious to read what native English speakers would think of them. So feel free to share your cr...

Re: What will be the next single?

"I am disappeared" might have been disqualified as a single because of its length and format. Maybe this time "Plain sailing weather" will be disqualified because of the many "Fuck" it contains (hello America)? I would vote for "Polaroid Picture", wonderful lyrics, big "sing along potential", plus t...

Re: Thoughts on Broken Piano

I think I can see the amount of work this song has required, and also its meaning, but frankly it does not hit me the way "Jet lag" did (speaking of a slightly different 12th track).

I am not really bothered by the falsetto thing, I just believe Frank reaches our hearts through other ways though.
