Ten Minutes with Alison Mosshart

Fans of indie rock have long admired Alison Mosshart for her work as singer/guitarist in the hugely successful band, The Kills.

Her newest venture, with Jack White (of The White Stripes and The Raconteurs), Dean Fertita (of Queens of the Stone Age) and Jack Lawrence (of The Raconteurs and The Greenhornes) is a band called The Dead Weather and their first album, Horehound, debuts on Tueaday, July 14.
