In 2005, while collaborating with Brendan Benso, a fellow Michigan native whom White had worked with before, they composed a song called "Steady, as She Goes." This inspired them to create a full band, and they invited Jack Lawrence and Patrick Keeler of the Greenhornes to join them in what would become The Raconteurs. While on tour to promote Consolers of the Lonely, White developed bronchitis and often lost his voice. Allison Mosshart, the frontwoman for the The Kills (who was touring with the Raconteurs at the time) would often fill in as his vocal replacement. The chemistry between the two artists led them to collaborate, and in early 2009, White formed a new group called the Dead Weather.)
