After The White Stripes decided to call it a day, Jack White later went on to say he wouldn’t be joining any new bands. But while most of us are getting caught up in the drama of life post-White Stripes, Mr. White himself is just doing what he does best: working on the most random projects imaginable. So, to better understand the man behind Third Man Records and three wildly popular rock bands, NPR is beginning a weekly series of interviews with White called The Flipside.
With the series, the public broadcasting giant hopes to highlight a few things that fans may not have been aware of in regards to their savior. In this week’s edition, along with the mention that he’d be restarting his Third Man Upholstery business he ran before he was famous, the charismatic frontman talked a whole lot about his recent 45 with auctioneer Jerry King.
