One of the more interesting things about the White Stripes is that there’s a singer, a guitarist, a drummer–and that’s it. What’s missing from this mix? A bass player. This really, really bugged a guy named Steven McDonald.
He loved the White Stripes’ White Blood Cells album but the fact that there aren’t any bass lines drove him nuts. That’s probably because he plays bass in an LA band called Redd Kross and a rock song without a bass line just ain’t right. So back in 2002, Steve took White Stripes songs, adding in his bass line and posting the results online.
The results were surprisingly good and Jack White thought re-interpretations of his songs were okay. They may still exist somewhere online, but good luck finding them.
