The students at Dublin's Trinity College got quite the surprise last night, per NME.com:|
"The White Stripes' Jack White gave a surprise lecture at Dublin's Trinity College last night (October 18).
Leaving aside his guitar, White engaged in a highly philosophical discussion, where he talked candidly about his musical beliefs. Students who were expecting a straightforward interview seemed surprised by White’s sophisticated engagement with philosophy, and theories on anxiety and authenticity."

I do have to point out Jack revealed some interesting yet unexpected news regarding his early band, The Upholsters:
"In an unexpected twist, the guitarist also revealed the existence of a hidden run of EPs, made with his former band The Upholsterers, back when White used to work in an upholstery shop in Detroit.
The records were recorded on clear vinyl, encased in a transparent covering and hidden in 100 pieces of furniture that he upholstered.
"They could be records that will never be found, ever," he teased the student audience."
