Jack White Takes Bob Dylan Further Into Uncharted Territory

September 21, 2007 11:18 AM ET

What special hold does Jack White have over Bob Dylan? The other night the White Stripes frontman got Dylan to play his Blood on the Tracks gem "Meet Me In The Morning" for the first time ever live, at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville. And last night, White joined Dylan onstage for the big man's first ever live performance of "Outlaw Blues," from Bringing it All Back Home; White also got Dylan to play "One More Cup of Coffee" (one our personal faves, from Desire) for the first time since 1993.

“Santa Monica”

Everclear | 1996

After his brother and girlfriend both died of drug overdoses, Art Alexakis -- depressed and hooked on drugs himself -- jumped off the Santa Monica Pier in California, determined to die. "It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
