Red and white is out, blue is in. Get with the times, people! CBS News:
Jack White is musing on his latest color scheme.
“What if blues musicians like Robert Johnson and Blind Willie McTell actually wore blue clothes?” White wonders, laughing.
The former White Stripe has bathed his first solo album, “Blunderbuss,” with a pale blue palette. It informs the album artwork, the touring stage presentation and the outfits of his backing band, which alternates between all-male and all-female lineups.
Since he was a teenage upholsterer in Detroit, White has carefully color-coordinated his work. While recording “Blunderbuss” in his studio in Nashville, Tenn., White played on a pale blue telecaster and an old pale blue amplifier.
“I said, ‘Well, these are my hand tools. It’s all going to build up from this,’” says White.
