    Jack White, formerly of The White Stripes, covers the new music issue of The Hollywood Reporter. The frank singer/guitarist talks about a variety of things, like big cities, his love of Nashville and why he quit scoring The Long Ranger.

    About Cities vs. Nashville:

    "That was a survivalistic move on my part. I was in a particular pickle of a situation," he explains about leaving Detroit for Nashville. "Where am I supposed to go? I don't like big cities. I don't like Paris, Tokyo, New York… I can't exist in those towns; they make me feel claustrophobic and sort of worthless. My personality and the things that I want to accomplish on the day-to-day level just wouldn't sit well, I don't think, in the tiny towns of 3,000 people that I love in America. In Nashville, I could have my children here and could do what I need to do musically. And once Third Man existed, I knew that there was no other town that this could have existed in. When Karen and I moved here, we had no friends at all in this town, and nobody was here that I knew musically at all. So it was brand new. And now it feels like I've lived here for 50 years. I am always gonna live here."

    Why He Quit Scoring The Lone Ranger:

    It was a matter of time and schedule conflicts. "Their scheduling would not work out. Plus, I record things in a very difficult way. I don't use Pro Tools. I don't have a bunch of other engineers doing all my mixing and edits, so I'd have to find a way of melding my style of production into their digital world," he said. What a purist!

    What do you think of what Jack White had to say?
