Jack White recently made clear that he isn't afraid of complaining about things, and that includes today's concert crowds.
Chatting with Rolling Stone, the musician compared himself to Larry David. "Complaining about, you know, why they make shoelaces so much longer than they need to be," he said. "I'll be the only one to laugh, just to ease the tension in the room."
Focusing on concert goers, White said, "People can't clap anymore, because they've got a f--king texting thing in their f--king hand, and probably a drink, too! Some musicians don't care about this stuff, but I let the crowd tell me what to do. There's no set list. I'm not just saying the same things I said in Cleveland last night. If they can't give me that energy back? Maybe I'm wasting my time."
During the rest of the chat, Jack praised Daft Punk as "amazing," as well as Kanye West, regretting somewhat of a missed opportunity to appear on the rapper's latest effort "Yeezus."
White said about West's latest tour: "That might have been the greatest show I've seen in my life. It was more punk, more in-your-face than anything I've seen."
