Jack White

He tells Nylon magazine, "Only one girl can offset a whole gang of guys... That's the beauty of collaborating with males and females... There's something in the room, there's a new energy, and it sort of wipes the slate clean."

"It gets rid of all the bulls**t, and you can get some place really fast... It's almost a good idea for an all-guy band just to have a girl sitting there, an engineer or something, in the room. Or a puppy. Or an axe murderer. Something extreme. That's why we have Alison. We tried to get all three in one."
