The White Stripes get a bassist!

And he’s pretty famous…

White Stripes were joined by BECK onstage in LA where he played bass with the DETROIT duo.

Jack and Meg are currently on a North American tour and this week, have been playing a mini-residency at the city’s Greek Theatre.

At Wednesday’s gig (August 17) Beck joined the band onstage for the encore. First they duetted on a version of the singer’s track ’Cold Brains’. Then, Beck picked up the bass and played on ’Get Behind Me Satan’ track ’The Denial Twist’.

White and Beck are friends, and Jack also makes a cameo appearance on Beck’s current album ’Guero’.
