It’s been said that he has an obsession with the number 3. The name of his brand Third Man Records; then he played 3 songs for the fastest record which took 3 hours. And once it was ready Jack White himself sold the first 3 albums. This so called obsession might appear from the Trinity in Catholicism: the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost.
