CARRIED AWAY BY A FIVE O'CLOCK SHADOW: Although Jack White might be a bit of a knob, he's got a good ear for picking out a collaborator: after doing Loretta Lynn, he's now working on stuff with Brendan Benson. We're not sure how Benson will feel at MTV thus deciding that he's "the new Loretta", but he seems pretty excited by the results of the union:

"It's weird, man. There's stuff on there that sounds like Cat Stevens, and there's some stuff on there that sounds like Led Zeppelin," Benson said. "I can say some of the stuff sounds like pure Jack White. You can hear it and say, 'Oh, that's a Jack White song.' I don't know if people are going to think it's crap or brilliant. I have no idea."
