Most music fans would feel at least a little bit starstruck to meet Jack White — but not the musician’s Nashville neighbors: White recently showed up to an annual neighborhood potluck, where, apparently, the crowd mostly had no idea who he was.

Travel writer Jedidiah Jenkins posted a photo from the potluck on his Instagram along with a caption about how his mom has been putting on the event for the past decade, but this was the first time White has ventured out of his “large gated historic home shrouded in trees” to join them.

“This year, without warning, the occupant decided to come mingle with the neighbors,” Jenkins wrote. “Of course many of them had no idea who he was. ‘Jack White? Nice to meet you.’ He apologized for traveling so muc and missing out over the years.”
