Ben Blackwell Q&A

Post by higherlimits » Sat Apr 25, 2009 1:01 am

White Swirl is pleased to announce that Ben Blackwell has agreed to do a Question and Answer session with us. Is there something that you want to know? Something that's been bugging you for far too long? Some random fact that you're dying to know? Well, here's your chance to pick Ben's brain.

If you don't know who Ben Blackwell is then perhaps you should read the liner notes of some of the White Stripes releases, he is often thanked in them and even wrote the ones accompanying "Under Blackpool Lights".

Ben is the official historian of the White Stripes, the entire White Stripes Historical Department and the worlds foremost expert on White Stripes collectibles.

Ben has been drumming with The Dirtbombs since he was 17, is the founder of Cass Records, the potential author of a forthcoming 33 1/3 book on White Blood Cells and current Pinball Wizard at Third Man Records.

We will be taking question submissions throughout until May 1 so please post them here! We're making it an anonymous Q&A so no one will see your questions until they're answered! Please post as many as you can think of and we'll take the best ones, please make them good!

I have decided that the BEST question (as chosen by Ben) will be awarded a FREE White Stripes 45 of Moderate value of the winner's choosing, I'll give a list soon enough, nothing more than about $30 though, so Seven Nation army Promo, Merry Christmas, Conquista, etc. are all available!

Ben has now posted his answers and all has been revealed!

The winning question is question number 15! "What kind of music were you influenced by early on and how do you feel these influences have helped to shape your career?" The winner has been notified and will receive his/her prize in the mail.

A big thanks to Ben for doing this for us and keep your eye out for more in the future, we're aiming at one a month, we should have a thread open for June questions soon!
