Jack White Biography

Jack White was born John Anthony Gillis on July 9, 1975. The son of Teresa and Gorman Gillis is the youngest of ten children who were raised Catholic in the tough neighborhood of Detroit, Michigan. His mother, who was also the youngest child of ten, was 45 when she had him. "So when I was in high school my parents were the same age as my friends' grandparents," he said in an interview.

White started playing music at the age of six when he learned how to play the drum. He listened to Jimi Hendrix and The Who in his teen years, sharing his taste with childhood friend Dominic Suchyta. Together they recorded cover songs and formed a band with White's brother Eddie. Another friend Brian Muldoon introduced him to punk music. As a duo with White in the guitar, they recorded an album and called themselves The Upholsterers.
