In an interview conducted by Maximum Ink, drummer Charlie Benante of Anthrax mentioned Jack White as an artist that he would like to collaborate with in the future. He offered:

"I would love to do something with Jack White. I think he is someone who is very gifted, and someone who 'gets it' in the music world. There was that thing he did with The White Stripes, at the time, was just him and a drummer. It was blues and something totally beyond that. It was way ahead of its time. I was listening from afar and I heard him [produce] a Lorretta Lynn record, which I thought was just fucking awesome."

"Early on for me, I looked to England for inspiration. Whether it was The Beatles, [Led] Zeppelin or Black Sabbath, the style on how to write songs always came from over there [England]. It wasn't until Kiss or Van Halen that rock got that American feel. The late '70s was a great time for music."
