Jim Diamond talks about Detroit

Legendary Detroit producer Jim Diamond talks to the Phoenix New Times about whether he realized the White Stripes were going to be huge:

No, you never think anyone is going to become a mega-star. These are your buddies you drink with, who happen to have a band. I thought they were good, and I thought Jack was a very talented guy, and he probably had a greater sense of, you know, having a good look than anyone else in Detroit, and, you know, they worked really hard, they toured a lot. So, having some talent, having a good look, and touring a lot — that’s a big piece of the puzzle.
