Jack White vows to set 'metaphorical' world record
Jack White has vowed to enter the Guinness Book of World Records by breaking "the world record for most metaphors in a single concert."
In a cheeky blog post on his website, the White Stripes main man responded the books compilers for denying his claim that The White Stripes played the shortest concert on record by attempting to set another one while on tour in support of his solo album, Blunderbuss.
"The attempt may prove very exhausting and at times even dangerous, but the results could prove to be glorious and possibly even vainglorious," he wrote. "We are certain that the extremely scientific and intricate analysis of the metaphors that occur will be examined in accordance with Guinness’ usually very thorough methods probably, or at the very least if somebody answers the phone at the pub."
He added: "Third Man Records encourages all attendees of said concerts to please not interfere or interject with any metaphors that they witness occur during the show as to not disqualify or worse yet, trivialize the metaphor in question. In addition all concert attendees are encouraged to entice as many metaphors to occur during the show that they possibly can as long as they don’t endanger themselves or Mr. White."
Earlier this week, White criticized the Guiness compilers as "elitist" because they denied he and former White Stripes bandmate Meg White a place in the book for holding the record for the shortest concert in history. In 2007, the duo performed a single note and a cymbal clash during a tour stop in Newfoundland, Canada but do not appear in the book.
