Published Jan 10, 2012Fans may be wondering what Jack White has been up to since the official break-up of the White Stripes (aside from masterminding Third Man Records, of course). Well, today we can confirm that he has been spending some of his time buying $12,500 elephant heads.
White appeared on American Pickers last night (January 9) as a potential customer for the show's hosts. It didn't take too much convincing to get White to purchase the giant head, but he wasn't prepared to buy it without some bargaining. Watch the episode to see if White was able to talk them down from the proposed $12,500 pricetag. He offers up some items for trade too, including a photo booth from a Dead Weather music video, and an old jukebox.
The former White Stripes frontman couldn't contain his excitement, declaring his love for "the majesty of taxidermy." Check out a clip over at 5min.com or watch the entire episode here courtesy of the History Channel (Jack White's appearance starts around the 34-minute mark).
