White Stripes frontman Jack White has revealed that he had a calling to be a priest when he was a teenager.

The singer told BBC Radio 4 he eventually chose the musical route, but could see similarities between the two professions.

“I was thinking at 14 that possibly I might have had the calling to be a priest...Blues singers sort of have the same feelings as someone who’s called to be a priest might have,” he said.

“I thought maybe I need to give myself a chance to play music while I’m a teenager. I guess a different calling, on stage really.”

As previously reported on Gigwise, White has recently been working with Wanda Jackson on the singer's new album.
