NASHVILLE, TN—Saying that he likes the raw, untrained quality of Stern's vocals, White Stripes front man Jack White has teamed up with NBA commissioner David Stern in his latest side project, called Lakota Brick. According to the 33-year-old White, the band consists of himself, primarily on reed organ, and Stern, 66, on vocals and electric guitar. "The Raconteurs allowed me to experiment with more of a poppy sound, and the Dead Weather is more loose and sexual. I think in Lakota Brick, with David's ability to attack the microphone, we get something completely unhinged and almost frightening," said White, adding that the band recorded its first album, Confederation Of Seven, in one week at his Nashville studio. "David is also an excellent lyricist. He came in with about a dozen composition notebooks filled with songs, and he also did the album's artwork." White added that Lakota Brick would be performing a series of surprise concerts throughout New Zealand in August.

No. this is stupid. I am a big Onion fan but this is not their best work. It's stupid. It's not funny. There is nothing funny about it.

That Onion story a few years back about the guy scoring a bag of weed on christmas eve (http://www.theonion.com/content/node/30821). Now that shit is funny.

I think it's pretty funny. If you follow Jack White and his projects.

Yay, another meh side project instead of what people actually want. If I hadn't seen "the onion", I would have totally believed it.

That would be no fun. It's all about the headline.

See Tom, this is why it was funny. I totally believed it too... then halfway through reading it my eyes wandered and I saw Andrew's post that read "The Onion is genius." and I will relieved. I got a good laugh out of this.

Yes. Jack White should just give people what they want. Selfish bastard with his hugely successful side projects. Meg should snap out of that depression and get back on the road. The people demand it.

And I could tell it was a spoof as soon as I read "David Stern". Maybe it's because I'm a basketball fan and know what a pompous little smallminded prick Stern is.
