White is not only a talented skateboard wielder but also handles the guitar pretty well. According to USA Today, the national snowboarder needed a challenge after dominating the sport for so long and hence took to music. He formed a band, "Bad Things", landed a contract with Warner Brothers and also started a tour in July.
Talking about his musical career with the Rolling Stones, White said:
"Playing guitar was the first time I realized I wasn't going to be the best at something. I remember the day: I was watching the Zeppelin video The Song Remains the Same and I'm like, 'Oh my God. I'm not gonna be better than this guy."
Meanwhile, on the real estate front, looks like Malibu's market is red hot now - be it renting or buying. Several celebrity homes in the area have hit the rental market of late. Check out some recent celebrity activity in the area, here.
