The new issue of Rolling Stone calls Jack White “rock & roll’s Willy Wonka,” but excerpts from his interview make him sound more “hey, you kids, get off my lawn.” Right out of the gate this set-up is enforced with a quote from White comparing himself to Larry David. “Complaining about, you know, why they make shoelaces so much longer than they need to be,” White tells the mag.
