Jack White of The White Stripes has advice for aspiring musicians. He does not recommend music games.
In the past, White has stated he isn't too fond of music games. (He is fond of rocking out on his guitar!)
The White Stripes have lent music to Guitar Hero 5. His other groups, The Raconteurs and The Dead Weather, have had their music featured in the likes of Guitar Hero: World Tour and on the Rock Band store.
When asked in a recent interview by British music publication NME what three things every new musician needs, the frontman replied, "They need to quit playing video games, throw away their Auto-Tune program and cut three strings off their guitar."
Jack White is pretty bad ass.
Reminds me of David Bowie's advice to young musicians: "If it itches, go see a doctor." Words to live by!
