If you’ve been holding your breath for a White Stripes reunion, you’ve already died. And sadly, you died in vain, because Jack White says, “I highly doubt that would ever be a thing.”
In an interview with “Rolling Stone”, Jack says that as he’s writing songs, if he comes up with something that fits with a specific past project like the Raconteurs or the Dead Weather, he puts them aside and saves them.
But he isn’t saving anything for the White Stripes. And that’s because the White Stripes basically is Jack White.
Meg White won’t be happy to hear this, but he said, “There’s a case to be made that, in a lot of ways, the ‘White Stripes’ is Jack White solo. In a lot of ways.
“There’s only two people in the band. I was writing and producing and conducting. The melodies are coming from one person…the rhythm is coming from Meg.”
Elsewhere in the interview, he says that he’s started to embrace some digital production…after Chris Rock told him that no one cares how you make songs anymore. (Vulture.com has a few more highlights from the interview.)
