Jack White: 'Internet Is A Nuisance'
Jack White dreams of a world with no internet - because the web is "a nuisance" that trivializes music.
The White Stripes rocker - who famously records most of his songs using old-fashioned analogue equipment - appreciates that modern technology connects people around the world, but he's adamant it is harming the music industry.
He tells British rock mag NME, "In my head I'm still living and working as if there is no internet, and treat it as a nuisance and use it for whatever is good about it that we can scrape together after the fact."
"The internet is a beautiful tool for many, many things, but is in direct opposition to the art of music being treated with respect, and delivered to the majority in a tangible way. As every day passes music is more and more looked at as a sound bite and a trifle."
