“Citizen Jack: How Jack White Built an Empire From the Blues” is due out in October, but Jack White and Third Man Records are distancing themselves as far as possible from the upcoming release via The Overlook Press

The writer claims that it’s “the only book yet to tell the full story of the 21st century’s most influential rock star’ the book is said to contain interviews from people close to White, including former bandmate Brendan Benson and Third Man artists such as Neil Young and Seasick Steve… No other book goes as deep into the lore of Jack White and The White Stripes”
Third Man Records hasn’t issued a Cease and Desist, so it looks like the book will still come out in October. They may discredit certain facts when it comes out, but we’ll have to wait and see if that happens at all.
