The Guinness Book of World Records has responded to Jack White, who says that he and former White Stripes bandmate Meg White have been denied a hard-earned spot in the book.
White claimed they held the record for "Shortest Musical Performance" but the book has explained why they've dropped any records involving brevity.
"The White Stripes were in fact recognized in the 2009 edition of the Guinness World Records book for the shortest music concert ever when, on July 16 2007, they played just one note at St John's in Newfoundland, Canada," they said.
"Subsequent to this appearance we received a large volume of applications from bands and performers seeking to beat this record. The ultimate results of this was individuals claiming that simply appearing onstage was enough to qualify them for this record."
