Which Rocker Has a Private Bowling Alley with a Nod to Bob Dylan?
Jack White goes behind the music in a new profile fromThe New Yorker. In the article, White opens up about his home, and he mentions that he has his own private bowling alley in his Nashville residence, which includes bowling balls dedicated to his friends. One of those bowling balls is dedicated to the one and only Bob Dylan!
“Each dedicated ball has a name tag, and some of the balls are painted fancifully,” Alec Wilkinson of The New Yorker wrote. “Bob Dylan's has a portrait of John Wayne.”
The article also reveals that White owns some special, rare collectibles, among those an issue of Action Comics No. 1 dating back to 1938, which is where Superman first appeared, and bluesman Leadbelly’s New York City arrest record.
In The New Yorker piece, White also mentions that he has dreams of directing movies and is “disappointed at losing the opportunity” to direct a movie about White Boy Rick, a notorious Detroit drug dealer and F.B.I. informant.
