Shaun White Dreams Up Music Festival For VH1, Has Unsurprisingly Good Taste

Shaun White is undoubtedly one of the coolest, most laid-back athletes on the planet. After being interviewed on what he knows best for VH1′s Big Morning Buzz Live, the Olympic snowboarder made time for more casual conversation with Jim Shearer on the roof of VH1′s Times Square headquarters. The topic of conversation; if White was choosing the music for his very own festival, which artists would make the cut? While the video only clocks in at just over a minute, White reveals a lot: his love of the Black Keys, hope for a White Stripes reunion, and some details of his attendance at Lollapalooza this year. He also proclaims that “all the cool [artists] are dead.”

The video is definitely worth checking out.
