Jack White: “I’ve got 20,000 songs on my iPod… and I drive an electric car!” (Q341 Preview)

jackwhiteJack White says he rejects the common perception of him as a technology-hating, analogue-loving luddite, insisting to Q he in fact embraces technology.

Speaking in Q341 out now, the former White Stripe tells Andrew Perry that he uses a lot not only technology, but also loves modern music and is a big hip hop fan.

“Times change up and down, the only thing that bugs me, every time I’m talking about the state of things, people end up sound-biting me, and making me into some fuddy-duddy old man that hates technology and doesn’t like modern music, which is such bullshit,” he declares.

“Anyone who knows me knows, I’ve got 20,000 songs on my iPod in my car, and half of them are rap music. And I’m driving an electric car!”
