To Hell With Blue Mondays Here’s JACK WHITE With An EDDIE VAN HALEN Guitar

12 October 2020

(Saturday Night Live)

Last Saturday bluesman-at-heart played JACK WHITE
on American TV show Saturday Night Live.

He performed a perfervid firework medley of ‘Ball and Biscuit’,
‘Don’t Hurt Yourself’, ‘Jesus Is Coming Soon’
and the title track of
his 2014 album Lazaretto which he performed with an Eddie Van
who passed away last Tuesday, only 65.

Jack White said: “I thought it could be a nice gesture for me to use this blue
Eddie Van Halen model guitar that was designed by Eddie. He was very kind to me
and saw to it that this guitar was made for me to my specs. I won’t even insult the
man’s talent by trying to play one of his songs tonight. Thanks again Eddie for
this guitar and rest in peace sir.”

Hit it, Jack
