Jack White never does anything half-ass. This year, when he donated money to the National Recording Preservation, he cut a check for $200,000. When punched the crap out of Von Bondies singer Jason Stollsteimer's face in 2003, he really punched the crap out of it. When White filed for divorce, he threw a party to celebrate "a positive swing band hum dinger" with "dancing, photos, memories, and drinks with alcohol in them," inviting "close personal friends and family... no plus ones or dead beats."
His drawn-out divorce from Karen Elson turned ugly recently, but we're still on White's side--the man's fearless and looks like Edward Scissorhands! Plus, he anonymously donated $142,000 to save Detroit's Masonic Temple, a popular music venue, from foreclosure. We don't care that White loathes Dan Auerbach from the The Black Keys. We wouldn't want our kids to be in the same classroom as Auerbach's kids either. Just kidding; that would be awesome.
