Jack White, Entering Heaven Alive
Before the White Stripes got huge and I gave up, my old band played second out of four bands, opening for them at some small club. Jack White took a long moment during his set to thank every band that played—but us. I can trace a lifetime of bitter grievance from that moment on.

Ah, fuck. Actually the new album is pretty good. Entering Heaven Alive. Damnit.

It still hurt my feelings though.—Z.L.
