Earlier this morning on the official Record Store Day webpage, it was announced that Jack White, the owner of Third Man Records who recently released flexi-vinyl singles via balloon launch, is the official ambassador for the 2013 iteration of the event.

Past ambassadors have included Ozzy Osbourne (twice), Josh Homme, Iggy Pop, and for 2008’s inaugural event, James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Kirk Hammett, and Robert Trujillo who play in a little band called Metallica.

Record Store Day falls on Saturday, April 20 this year. For our part, there will be no clever 4/20 quips at this time.
