Jack White Crashed Neighborhood Potluck But Nobody Recognized Him

"Jack White, nice to meet you"

International blues-rock star Jack White is a reclusive neighbor, as it turns out, because a celebrated music career is no substitute for getting a little face time with the good folks who live next to you. White learned this last weekend, when he decided to make a rare appearance at an annual potluck in his Nashville neighborhood… and nobody knew who he was.

According to an Instagram by Jedediah Jenkins, whose mother organized the get-together, the neighbors knew there was a big fancy gated home in the area, but they didn’t know who lived in it, until this year. And even when he joined in on the festivities, they still didn’t.

My mom helps host a neighborhood potluck in front of my childhood home. Our little dead-end street is populated primarily with elderly and quiet people. The houses are modest and suburban. My mom 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 they had no idea who he was. “Jack White, nice to meet you.” He apologized for traveling so much and missing out over the years.

And the best part is, nobody got into a fight.
