Jack White Wants You to Put Your Phone Away During Concerts

It's wasting his time...
Jack White has some advice for you if you attend a concert: quit with the texting. White was speaking with Rolling Stone while promoting his new album Lazaretto and was asked about the changing atmosphere of live shows.
White lamented the lack of attention people pay during concerts, noting, "People can't clap any more, because they've got a fucking texting thing in their fucking hand, and probably a drink, too! Some musicians don't care about this stuff, but I let the crowd tell me what to do. There's no setlist. I'm not just saying the same things I said in Cleveland last night. If they can't give me that energy back? Maybe I'm wasting my time."
