Jack White Named Honorary Dean of Music Academy

(Gibson) Jack White has been named an honorary dean of the Fermatta Music Academy in Mexico City. The former White Stripes and Raconteurs frontman appeared last month at the academy to accept the honor, which was presented to him by singer-songwriter Elan.

As reported by Rolling Stone, White spoke to those in attendance about his family and about music. "The sense of being a musician is making art, and I do not care whether it is solo or as part of a collective project," he said. "At all times, I seek to express myself, and different circumstances of my life could also become multiple creative and stylistic channels." White was also given a Lifetime Achievement Award at the ceremony.

Meanwhile, country singer Loretta Lynn has indicated she would like to collaborate with White on a follow-up to her 2004 album, Van Lear Rose, for which White served as producer, backup singer and multi-instrumentalist. "I think I'm going to go after Jack White and give him another call to do another album," Lynn told Billboard. more on this story
