White Stripes

Act: The White Stripes Influences: Led Zeppelin, all of American roots music, Your grandfather’s LP collection Perhaps no mainstream rock band has the ability to rip and recycle old record collections into something wholly new as well as the White Stripes. To get a sense of the act’s influences, just look at who the duo has covered: Robert Johnson, Bob Dylan, Dolly Parton, Burt Bacharach and a nearly forgotten country-meets-mariachi tune from Patti Page.
