The band played a scheduled slot this time around, after popping up unannounced during the "special guest" billing at the tiny Park Stage last year.
White told the audience he had been watching as Amy Winehouse famously thumped a fan at the front of the stage two years ago, NME reported. "It wasn't too long ago I saw Amy Winehouse give someone a smack for touching her hair," he said. "It's the same with Baby Ruthless [Alisson Mosshart's Dead Weather alter-ego] -- if you touch your hair you'll get a smack."
A fair warning -- Mosshart might not have been in the best of moods -- after confessing recently that she doesn't like playing festivals. "I think the daytime is ugly," she said. "I don't want to look out and see a rainbow of sunburns. It's not very rock 'n' roll."
The Dead Weather did their best to bring the rock to the amassed, and admittedly rather pink Pyramid stage crowd. White, on drums, sported a feathered black hat, leading the charge from the back of the stage. Mosshart strutted and flung her way around the performance which featured songs from both 'Sea of Cowards' and their debut, 'Horehound' including 'Die by the Drop' and 'I Cut Like a Buffalo' with White emerging from behind the drum kit for guitar duties on 'Will There Be Enough Water.'
