I think someone had some info that counts them out. Can't remember who. Even if I'm wrong I doubt they will be there. We basically know our headliners and there is no room for Dave at this point
I think you're referring to the person who commented that someone on the antsmarching board said leaked tour dates had them in Mass. on that weekend, but not Sunday. I am pretty sure that was the rumor, but I'm too lazy to go back and find it, to be honest.
April 12-14th - Indio, CA - Coachella Weekend 1
May 3-5th - Memphis, TN - Beale St. Music Festival
June 13-16th - Manchester, TN - Bonnaroo
July 12-14th - Louisville, KY - Forecastle Festival
August 2-4th - Chicago, IL - Lollapalooza
September 27-29th - Atlanta, GA - TomorrowWorld
October 25-27th - Asheville, NC - Mountain Oasis
This is correct. One more Blunderbuss and we'll have to flip Solo and Dead Weather though.
I totally agree. There's a palpable chemistry in Dead Weather, which also goes for The White Stripes, who are enhanced by their boundaries. On the flipside, Blunderbuss gave Jack more freedom, which he took advantage of to mixed results, something I can greatly respect. The Raconteurs never felt special to me. Jack seemed to be trying to prove that he's just one of the guys in a band, but he blows every member of The Greenhornes out of the water, and the second guitar always felt out of place. Forgive me if I'm off the mark, it's been a long time since I've listened to The Raconteurs.
I remember when this thread was about headliners. Don't miss it much at all.

I will say White Stripes>Solo>Raconteurs>Dead Weather. I have not seen WS or Jack solo live, but have seen enough videos, etc to confirm this in my head. I think the White Stripes have a huge body of work, so that is an obvious advantage. Blunderbuss is fantastic and I'm sure the next album will be as well. The fact that I rank Raconteurs 3rd is not a reflection of how I feel about them. I thought the albums were so-so, but that Raconteurs What Stage set (2009?) still ranks as one of my all-time favorite shows. I enjoy Dead Weather, but they are a distant 4th for me.
There needs to 2 different rankings: live and albums. The Dead Weather set at Coachella in 2010 was, without hyperbole, one of the best I've ever seen. The chemistry between JW and Mosshart was unreal. I've never seen The Racs live, but if they are even better than they have moved up my bucket list.
The Dead Weather are a great live band and Mossheart is a fantastic front woman. However, I don't think their recorded catalog is very good. Especially their second album. I like Racontuers shows better simply because JW plays guitar during them.
