Jack White named as top celebrity technophobe
Electric guitar player Jack White has been named as one of the Mirror's top ten celebrity technophobes.
The newspaper published a list of famous faces to shun technology, which included Ozzy Osbourne, Paul McCartney and Elton John, in the wake of Lily Allen's decision to stop using social networking site Twitter.
According to the publication, Jack White is so lo-tech that he does not even own a mobile phone and views those who do with suspicion.
The Mirror quoted the musician as saying he is reluctant to "give in to the digital age".
This coincides with comments from Brian May, who stated that "the whole world is a paparazzo now" because of camera phones.
Speaking to BBC News, Queen's electric guitar player said he regularly sees people on the high street snapping pictures of him on their handsets.
"And the next minute it'll be on the internet," the rock legend added.Posted on 22 Oct 2009 13:00 to category : Band / Celebrity News
