The Jacks were both on-tour in Europe with their respective bands – The Raconteurs for Mr. White and Tenacious D for Mr. Black – when they ran into each other. Tenacious D posted a picture of White in the middle of Black and his bandmate Kyle Glass. White is holding a Tenacious D t-shirt and the caption reads: “We hired a new merch guy.”
Rock fans have wanted this for a long time and the jokes never stopped. The Jacks famously fought it out on MTV’s Celebrity Deathmatch, and Black even introduced White’s The White Stripes at a concert, but as far as we can tell there had never been any concrete evidence that the two had actually met.
Tenacious D are still in Europe, but will return home for a string of U.S. dates beginning on July 25th at Red Rocks in Colorado. Get their itinerary here.
