Tom Waits makes rare public appearance and steals Jack White's watch


Tom Waits is a bit of a recluse in many ways, having only last been seen out in public with Mavis Staples 2017, made time to take in a gig and a little memento. The legend went to see Jack White on his recent tour… and took his watch.

White is performing on his Boarding House Reach tour in San Francisco and invited Waits to come and see the gig. Waits duly obliged and apparently, according to Jack White, took White’s watch as a souvenir.
