The White Stripes rocker reveals he ahd an alternative career lined up...

White Stripes singer JACK WHITE has said he almost become a priest!

Speaking in the US, Jack said as a young man he almost followed a life in church before changing his mind and becoming a musician.

He told CBS’ 60 Minutes: “I’d got accepted to the seminary in Wisconsin and I was going to become a priest, but at the last second I thought, ‘I’ll just go to public school’. I had just gotten a new amplifier in my bedroom and I didn’t think I was allowed to take it with me.”

White Stripes are currently working on their new album, the follow-up to 2003’s ’Elephant’.
