Jack White made a surprise appearance at Beck‘s concert in Nashville Monday.

At the beginning of the show, the White Stripes/Raconteurs/Dead Weather rocker took the stage and picked up an acoustic guitar while telling the crowd, “Hello, ladies and gentlemen, I’m Beck, I’m gonna do one of my favorite Beck songs from the 1990s that I wrote.”

White then proceeded to play “Tubthumping” by Chumbawamba and “I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)” by The Proclaimers, two songs that are very much not Beck songs from any decade, much less the 1990s.

In the middle of all that, the real Beck walked out and asked, “What are you doing Jack?”

After White said that he was tuning Beck’s guitar, the “Loser” artist responded, “You asked for some nail clippers, I went out to my car to get them, and I come back and you’re playing my show.”

White then handed Beck the guitar and gave him a real introduction before leaving the stage.

You can watch footage of the interaction via the Third Man Records Instagram.

Perhaps White can give Beck a similar introduction should the latter be chosen for induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame this year.
