White Stripes who? Jack White has moved on from his other popular groups to step out solo first time, and to great effect. His "Blunderbuss" scored No. 1 on the Billboard 200, he's confirmed work with Mick Jagger and Radiohead, continues to put out an impressive array of vinyl releases from Stephen Colbert to Insane Clown Posse to Beck -- many drops that he, in fact, produces and plays on. The man does what he wants, isn't that the dream?
