"He just showed up one day and in the back of the car was a nine-year-old dressed like him and he introduced me, said this is Jack," Guggenheim tells Spinner. "That's Jack White for you. He's like 'I want to teach myself how to play guitar.'" When asked whether or not they were related in any capacity, Guggenheim says "as far as I know, it was Jack White as a 9-year-old boy. The audience gets it."
Audiences are in for another little treat, too. Guggenheim eventually asked White to write a song on the spot while the cameras were rolling. "Jack completely bares his soul," he says. "He writes a song on camera, which I've never seen before. I said write a song for me, right now. He takes out a pencil for me and starts scribbling." The resulting effort, 'Fly Farm Blues,' will be released on August 11 via digital retailers and White's own Third Man Records.
White is currently making the rounds this summer as the drummer for the Dead Weather. Their west coast tour will kick off on August 17 at Denver's Ogden Theater.. 'It Might Get Loud' opens in Los Angeles and New York on August 14.
