The Dead Weather

12 Mar, 2009

White debuts his new band in a private show at the opening of Third Man Records’ downtown offices. White plays drums with Mosshart singing, Lawrence on bass, and Fertita on guitar. The band’s beginnings can be traced back to the Kills/Raconteurs tour where White asked Mosshart to fill in on lead vocals.

It reenergized the tour…We had one day off in Nashville where [Mosshart] had spent the night and the next day she would fly out. So the three of us [White, Mosshart and Lawrence] said, ‘Why don’t we record a 7-inch?’…Dean just happened to be spending the night in one of the ante rooms [in my house].
