Jack White is everywhere these days. If he's not ushering Neil Young into a cramped, vintage recording booth on Young's quaintly endearing new solo album, A Letter Home, he's working with and/or reviving the careers of such folks as Wanda Jackson, Loretta Lynn and Dexter Romweber. White came off as crass and ungrateful in recent comments in Rolling Stone, where he dissed former wife/drummer Meg White for apparently not worshipping him enough (and somehow comparing himself to Elvis and The Beatles in the process). But White is still a master of tangled rock riffage on his upcoming album, Lazaretto. “My veins are blue and connected/And every single bone in my brain is electric,” he brags, burying accusations of narcissism in a hail of interlocking, funky, hard-rock guitars. Also at the Mayan on Wednesday, June 13, and Fox Theater Pomona on Thursday, June 14.
