Jack White Is Part of 2 American Pickers Shows Filmed In Detroit
It is no surprise that Jack White is a huge fan of American Pickers with his love for classic items. White will be a guest on 2 episodes of the show filmed in Detroit.
The television show American Pickers is not to be confused with those hard-working folks that actually pick vegetables and fruit in our farming industry. The show's hosts are Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz who are specialists in antique and collectible items. The pair travel around the United States to buy (or "pick:) various items that are for sale. Sometimes the "Pickers" buy stuff for their own collection but most of the time the items are for resale or specific clients.
On one episode of American Pickers, Wolfe and Fritz discovered what turned out to be the original Aerosmith van the band used to travel to gigs when they first started out. This led to the entire band making an appearance on the show. So needless to say, Wolfe and Fritz are pretty comfortable around rockstars.

White's company Third Man Pressing is now one of the leading vinyl pressing plants around the world.
