I just saw the Dead Weather on Conan.
I thought they were pretty cool.

We did have to laugh at the "I'm Jack White, give me a close-up for my drum solos" shots.
Saw them on Letterman recently, it looked like Bono even has a hard time calling him THE Edge. It seems like it was a cool thing for him to call himself back in the 80's, and now he's stuck with it for branding purposes. They are such a major corporation now, that changing his name would go over as well as when THE Coke tried to change it's formula.
