Daru Jones outshines Jack White on SNL
It is the hard rocking performance having the twitter world talking, and oh, yes Jack White was not bad too.
The former Whites Stripes guitarist performed his new single Sixteen Saltines on Saturday Night Live recently. Those familiar with the song from White's solo debut Blunderbuss know it's a spiky affair, but his all male band (White gave his other all female backing band the night off) backed by the thunderous drumming of Daru Jones took the performance to a whole new level of intensity. Jones may not be a house-hold name but hip-hop heads would recognise him as the Michigan drummer played with the likes of Slum Village, Black Milk, Hi-Tek & Talib Kweli and Idle Warship. Enjoy this fine performance from the skins-man.
