    The identity of the mystery donor who paid off Detroit Masonic Temple's $142,000 tax bill has been revealed. It's rock 'n' roller Jack White, who saved the historic Michigan building. He is from Michigan, so that's his roots.

    White made the payment on May 30, four days before the June 3 foreclosure deadline.

    It is believed that his mother was an usher there and that he played gigs at the location, as well.

    Detroit Masonic Temple Association President Roger Sobran says, "Jack's donation could not have come at a better time and we are eternally grateful to him for it. Jack's magnanimous generosity and unflinching loyalty to this historic building and his Detroit roots is appreciated beyond words."

    The temple's Cathedral Theater will be renamed the "Jack White Theater."

    Does this generous act make you dig Jack White even more?
