Every few months it seems like there is a new tribute album out on the market, covering some really fantastic musicians. In the past we've seen albums paying respect to Buddy Holly, Fleetwood Mac, John Denver and others. The latest in this string of tributes, Jack White is being honored by some of the formative musicians behind the rockabilly and punk genres. Rockin' Legends Pay Tribute to Jack White
will be released on November 18th, and features 14 covers of Jack White songs, from the White Stripes to his solo material.
The list of contributing artists is as follows:
Wanda Jackson- 'In the Cold Cold Night'
Big Jay McNeely and Nik Turner – 'I’m Shakin''
Gary U.S. Bonds – 'Salute Your Solution'
Sonny Burgess and the Legendary Pacers – 'Steady As She Goes'

While it may seem like White has only been around for a little while, he's actually been performing for more than 20 years, and has been quite prolific. Between The White Stripes, the Raconteurs, and the Dead Weather, White has played on 10 studio albums. He's also played on film sountracks, produced fellow musicians' records, and been in quite a few films.
If you were hoping for an album of covers performed by Jack White, you're out of luck. But fear not! White's record label, Third Man Records, recently tweeted about his band, the Dead Weather, writing new material. Hopefully we'll be hearing from the man himself soon.
