Motor City Rocks is a Detroit website that seems to have the scoop when it comes to Jack White raging out like an asshole.
In an email to motorcityrocks.com, Jason Von Bondie says, “This was not the first time it happened and I was not the first person in Detroit it happened to.”
He also provides the following statement, which appears on the Von Bondies official site:
While attending a show at the Magic Stick nightclub in Detroit with his wife and the two female members of his band, The Von Bondies, on Saturday December 13, 2003 singer-songwriter Jason Stollsteimer was violently attacked by Jack White of The White Stripes, without warning or provocation. White approached Stollsteimer during the concert, physically forcing him against the speakers and began shouting. Stollsteimer attempted to turn his head and face White, but refused to engage in conversation. Visibly angered by Stollsteimer?s unwillingness to argue or fight, White spat into Stollsteimer?s face and punched him in the head and face repeatedly. White then forced Stollsteimer to the ground and continued his attack until White was restrained by several crowd members. Stollsteimer was rushed by ambulance to Detroit Receiving Emergency Center for treatment. Stollsteimer has been released and is recovering from the attack at home. No further details are available at this time.(more coverage)
“I Think We’re Going to Be Friends” is a song I don’t see Jack dueting with the Von Bondies.
