Scottish singer/songwriter KT TUNSTALL was left speechless after coming face to face with her hero JACK WHITE backstage at a Japanese music festival. Tunstall had always dreamed of meeting the White Stripes and Raconteurs star - and wrote him a love note when she learned he'd be on the same bill as her at the Fuji Rock Festival. She recalls, "He's like Led Zeppelin in one man. It was a magical moment... the Raconteurs' dressing room was opposite ours, so I got a bit of paper and wrote, 'Did I ever tell you you're my hero? I'm totally in love with you.' "I went to put it in his room, but it was full of the trendiest people who looked like they hadn't eaten since they were children. "I thought, 'I can't put the note in there, they'll ridicule me.' Then I turned around and there was this giant belt buckle in my face, and there was Jack."

Ben Swank?

From her wikiwikiwawa page...
http://en.wikipedia....iki/KT_Tunstall

"Since 2003, Tunstall has been dating Luke Bullen, the drummer in her band. She has indicated her intention to live in Edinburgh with Bullen."

Apparently Bullen thumped the tubs for Joe Strummer's Mescaleros outfit in 2001.

I just read this story at the airport newsstand- I think in Rolling Stone- the story ends with Jack reading the note and giving her a big hug. Very adorable. Her music is not among my favorites, but she seems smart and good natured in interviews.

not the best video as it cuts off the very beginning - but essentially everything you hear she builds up as layers, really well done

I've had plenty of belt buckles in my face, and yes, each time it's been magical.
