Jack White is readying the release of his solo platter Blunderbuss but he is still fielding questions about The White Stripes, the band that made him famous.
He revealed that ex-wife, bandmate and drummer Meg White chose to end the band and that he still isn't sure why.
He says, "There came a point where I said, 'If we're not doing this, we need to put an end to it right now.' And that's what she wanted to do. I don't know what her reasons are. Having a conversation with Meg, you don't really get any answers. I'm lucky that girl ever got onstage, so I'll take what I can get." She has anxiety, and they once canceled a tour because of it, hence the comment about getting her onstage.
He continued, "Meg completely controlled the White Stripes. She's the most stubborn person I've ever met, and you don't even get to know the reasons." Wow, really?
The guitarist also holds no hope for a reunion, saying, "I'd make a White Stripes record right now. I'd be in the White Stripes for the rest of my life. That band is the most challenging, important, fulfilling thing ever to happen to me. I wish it was still here. It's something I really, really miss."
Do you believe Jack White's comments? Holding out hope for a reunion down the road, years from now?
