This picture is incredible. My sister texted it to me. Listen to this. My mom helps put on a neighborhood potluck in front of my childhood home. Our little dead-end street is populated primarily with older and quiet people. The houses are modest and suburban. My neighborhood has been doing this potluck for over a decade. At the bottom of our street, there is a large gated historic home shrouded in trees. We've never really spotted that neighbor. But we have from time to time heard guitar coming from the garage. This year, without warning, the occupant decided to come mingle with the neighbors. Of course many of them had no idea who he was. "Jack White? nice to meet you." He apologized for traveling so much and missing out over the years. #lifeiswonderful 📷 by @making_dinner #lookatthesepeople #theyhavenoidea #notelvisdontcare
Jack White has called Nashville his home for quite some time now. When he’s not not making albums with one of his bands or getting into arguments with The Black Keys, you could possibly see him around town. The musician has his Third Man Records studio there, all of his band members live there, and he’s even got a star on Nashville’s Music City Walk of Fame. So, people should be aware of his presence in Music City, unless you’re his neighbors, who apparently had no idea a rock legend lived on their street.
Before heading into town to see Run the Jewels, White showed up to his neighborhood’s annual potluck dinner for the first time, which took everyone by complete surprise – not only did they not know that it was Jack White living in that house, they didn’t know who Jack White was. All they knew was that the large, gated, historic home at the end of their street was occupied by someone who played guitar every once in a while in the garage. When Jack arrived to the potluck, he introduced himself and apologized that traveling preventing him from attending any of the previous years.
I wonder if he brought 16 saltines for the chili?
