Jack Black’s Tenacious 45th Year

jack-blackThe GTC is thrilled to be wishing the great musician & actor Thomas Jacob Black a Very Happy 45 Years Of Life.

We thank you, Jack, for all the music and laughs your duo (w/Kyle Glass), Tenacious D, has given us for going on 20 years now. Just the sight of you with a guitar in hand is enough to make anyone want to get ready for trip to Chuckleville…

We’d also like to say thank you for all the great films!

Here a few of our faves…

  • Nacho Libre (’06)
  • School of Rock (’03)
  • Tenacious D & The Pick of Destiny (’06)
  • High Fidelity (’00)
  • Kung Fu Panda (’08)
  • Bernie (11)

Now some wise words from your own mouth…

“There’s nothing you can really do to prepare to rock. Do you prepare to eat a delicious meal? Are you hungry? Then you’re gonna eat it.” – Jack Black

“The movie Spinal Tap rocked my world. It’s for rock what The Sound of Music was for hills. They really nailed how dumb rock can be.” – Jack Black

“We’re in the dark ages if J-Lo can have a music career because of her ass. And let’s face it, that’s it.” – Jack Black

“Don’t be celebrities, because then you go cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs, You don’t want that, do you?” – Jack Black

“If Beethoven and Bach hooked up with Mozart and made a band, they could be a distant runner up to The D.” – Jack Black

Well said Sir Black of The D!
