I feel like I whined a bit about my Adams experience. It was my first time seeing the man perform. I'd worked 14 of the last 16 days and drove hours to see him perform. I simply wished to see him lay his bravado on the line, to have his famed recalcitrance shine through by performing one or two of his sad, old, fucking standards.
This White Stripes clip makes up for it all, though. As much as we've discussed about the Stripes' schtick, Jack puts 150% into every performance. No dialing it in there.
