To watch him in an interview, singer Jack White comes across as one of the coolest guys in the music world; surely not one that would freak out over guacamole dip, right? Wrong!
It seems that the star was left with a bitter taste in his mouth after a university shared his tour rider demands, which included a very particular guacamole dip that was ordered to be prepared for 5pm on the day of the gig.
Indeed, so keen were Jack’s people to have the perfect dip that they even sent over a recipe for a homemade version, with some VERY specific instructions.
Finding the whole thing pretty hilarious, the University of Oklahoma’s student newspaper decided to share a copy of Jack’s ride demands online – a move which the Freedom At 21 star did not appreciate.
Indeed, concert-goers revealed that Jack had a good rant about it at the concert later that night, telling the crowd: “Just because you can type it on your computer doesn’t make it right.”

While it is believed that his main bone of contention lay with the revelation that he had been paid $80,000 for his performance, a statement issued later by his people drew particular attention to the guacamole dip!
“Jack doesn’t write the rider nor make demands about his favourite snacks that must be in his dressing room. We’re not even sure he likes guacamole but we do know that the folks who work hard to put on the show do enjoy it. By the way, now that it’s out there, we recommend you try Lalo’s guacamole recipe. It’s delicious,” wrote a representative.
All that fuss…over dip. We kind of want to try it now
