Conan and Jack White Teaming Up for Something
Well, if you're anything like me, just reading that headline has given you a raging case of Fanboy Boner. Seriously, just read it again. I'll wait. How do I know this is happening? Conan told me. At first I thought I was a lucky dog, and I was going to get a drop on this scoop before anyone else. Turns out, Conan told somewhere in the ballpark of one-million people this news at the same time. I proceeded to click the link in his tweet and found this video: If you don't know who Jack White is, then I pity you. He's one of, if not the best blues/rock guitar player of the current generation. Some have even gone so far as to dub him Generation Y's Eric Clapton. White is front man for The White Stripes, and a member of The Raconteurs, The Dead Weather, and The Upholsterers. And you probably wouldn't be reading this article if you didn't know who Conan O'Brien is. So, I'll spare you the introduction.
What does the video mean? Well, I honestly don't know. However, I do know that Conan is a fairly talented musician. He's played his guitar a number of times on his show, culminating in the star powered final episode of his stint at The Tonight Show.
So what I'm hoping for is a Jack White/Conan O'brien musical collaboration. If this happens, be prepared for the flood of crazed-fangirl penned Conan/Jack White slash-fiction. And if you don't know what slash-fiction is, then I suggest you google it when you're ready to have your childhood destroyed.
