Early life

Controversy

Jason and Jack White of The White Stripes had a fight on December 13, 2003 at the Majestic Theatre Center, in a Detroit night-club called 'The Magic Stick'. [http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,105849,00.html] . This was the second time the two had been in a physical altercation over the unresolved issues surrounding the production credit that Jim Diamond believed he deserved on the 2001 Von Bondies album, Lack of Communication. Mr. Diamond and the rest of the Von Bondies both agreed that Jim Diamond did most of the production work, but Jack denied their claims and personally placed his own name on the credits of the album as the sole producer, which led to the infamous brawl. [http://www.thesmokinggun.com/archive/jackwhite1.html] Additionally, Jim Diamond was also suing the White Stripes at the time claiming he produced their two earliest albums, which may have added fuel to the conflict. The first was one year earlier, also in Detroit. White's and Stollsteimer's Police reports on the incident contradict each other as to who started the scuffle. In March [2004] , Jack White plead guilty to aggravated assault, was made to pay $750 (including court costs) and to attend anger management classes. [http://www.nme.com/news/von-bondies/16373] .
