White Stripes frontman Jack White has declared he's changing his name for the duration of his band's British dates. Kicking off their tour in London last night (November 5) at the Hammersmith Apollo, the singer told fans he wants to be known as "Three Quid" while he's in the UK. Arriving on stage in a top hat and carrying a large stuffed bird, White described London as the band's "home from home" before announcing his name change. White gave no reason for the switch, but repeated his new identity again during the middle of the gig.
He is still in his Overt phase, but I've got some theoretical high hopes for Three Quid.
