“Let’s get married in a big cathedral by a priest.”

Jack White formerly of the White Stripes grew up Catholic in working class Detroit. The youngest of the track “Hotel Yorba” by The White Stripes, in which White sings, “You’ll prob’ly say I’m silly to think childish thoughts like these, but I’m so tired of acting tough and I’m gonna do what I please. in a big cathedral by a priest ’cause if I’m the man you love the most you can say I do at least.”ten children, his parents both worked for the Archdiocese of Detroit, in Building Maintenance and as a Secretary in the office of the Cardinal.  White was an altar server and even thought about becoming a priest in high school, “I’d gotten accepted to seminary in Wisconsin and I was gonna become a priest . . . but I’d just gotten an amplifier in my bedroom and I didn’t think I was allowed to take it with me.”

It’s wedding season. We recommend the track “Hotel Yorba” by The White Stripes, in which White sings, “You’ll prob’ly say I’m silly to think childish thoughts like these, but I’m so tired of acting tough and I’m gonna do what I please. Let’s get married in a big cathedral by a priest ’cause if I’m the man you love the most you can say I do at least.”
