Jack White touched on a little bit of everything during his headlining set at Bonnaroo this weekend.  He topped the bill Saturday night at the Manchester, Tennessee festival, and Billboard says he played everything from early White Stripes cuts to tracks from his new solo album Lazaretto.  

White even hinted at the controversy that recently popped up in the wake of his Rolling Stone cover story.  He asked the crowd if Rolling Stone makes music happen, then answered his own question by saying that he and the fans are the ones who actually "make it exist." 

And White and his band made plenty of music exist on Saturday, and even a little on Sunday.  After a 90-minute set, he returned to the stage for a half-hour encore.  It all ended around 1:00 a.m. with a triumphant version of "Seven Nation Army" that featured the audience chanting the song's famous bass line and a few new lyrics from White specifically for the local Tennesseans.
