Claims Guinness denied world record

16 May, 2012

White claims the Guinness Book of World Records denied The White Stripes’ record for shortest concert in history for its 2007 show.

The thing is, though, that the Guinness book is a very elitist organisation. There’s nothing scientific about what they do. They just have an office full of people who decide what a record is and what isn’t. Most of the records in there – who has the biggest collection of salt-and-pepper shakers or whatever – are just whatever they want them to be.
