Jack White is determined to gain a spot in the Guinness Book Of World Records. Having been refuted in his claim that he and former White Stripes bandmate Meg White staged the shortest concert in history the "performance" consisted of one note and a cymbal crash White says he will now attempt to establish a record for "most metaphors in a single concert".
In a statement posted on his website, White writes: "Third Man Records encourages all attendees of said concerts to please not interfere or interject with any metaphors that they witness 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."
With tongue firmly in cheek, White also writes: "The attempt may prove very exhausting and at times even dangerous, but the results could prove to be glorious and possibly even vainglorious."
