Jack White brings the most intense set of the weekend

Jack White brings the most intense set of the weekend
It's a little unusual that Jack White is slurping a bottle of red wine, as it should've been moonshine. White brings the spirit of the Deep South with tales from his new album, Lazaretto. These are archaic tales of regret, reading like words of an obituary for a lost love. Sentimentality is lost, however, and White is fuming.
Closely surrounded by his band, White struts between each of his peers, whispering and prompting giggles. Instrumentally, this is a wonderful arrangement: a singing saw, steel guitar, a crooked old piano and, most poignantly, casually crafting moments of genius on his guitar. 'Three Women' fast becomes one of those 'Glastonbury moments'.
This is a set of an intense, boorish nature, and by that I mean combines new material with the White Stripes old,. However, the former White Stripes man enthrals the Glastonbury crowd as he sees fit. With his integrity fully intact, White teases the crowd with the guitar motif from 'Enter Sandman', there are laughs and ultimately jubilance. When White departed, the crowd beckons him back by singing the iconic 'Seven Nation Army', he returns quickly to give the crowd what they want, and boy is it wonderful. 
At every test thrown at him, White passes with an utter arrogance and brilliance. Surely one of the defining artists of our time.
