From: Detroit, Michigan.
The White Stripes packed so many people into the 99X Big Rock Show that Stone
Mountain was forced to close the gates and not let anyone else in. Stone Mountain
is pretty fucking big, and that is quite an accomplishment isn’t it? -It
just goes to prove that 99X has its collective finger on the pulse of Atlanta.
Once again 99X, MusicIncider thanks you. -The White Stripes have the coolest tech
crew. Every one of them dresses in red and black just like an army. There is no
mistaking who is with the fucking band. –The White Stripes have a simple
stage set up. There aren’t any pyros. There aren’t any DJ’s.
It is Jack White with his guitar, some amps, and a mic; and it is Meg White with
a mic and a simple drum set to Jack’s left. Looks pretty basic, but don’t
let looks fool you. For not having a bass, The White Stripes pump out a really
HUGE sound. The White Stripes play music that is bluesy, country, punk, and straight
up rock and roll. They are a regular music buffet and they can PULL IT OFF very
fucking well. I love the fact that they cover Loretta Lynn and Dolly Parton -two
amazing icons that get no fucking respect. They even pulled Loretta up on stage
for a concert. I love The White Stripes because they are DIFFERENT and they sound
GREAT. The crowd at Stone Mountain loved them for the same reason. -We heard Jolene
with Jack’s outstanding bluesy, country rock voice. I wonder what Dolly
Parton would have thought about it. I would love to see her on stage with Jack
and Meg. I would have loved to have seen Loretta Lynn on stage with them. I have
amazing amounts of respect for musicians that give love to those that came before
them. –We heard Seven Nation Army, and a dozen other soon to be White Stripe
classics. -The White Stripes rock. Atlanta loves them. I love them. 99X did an
amazing thing by bringing The White Stripes to Stone Mountain. The White Stripes
