Jack White: “I won’t joinanother band again”

Not long after the dramatic announcement released by Jack and Meg White that the White Stripes has come to an end, White has gone on to claim that he can’t see himself joining any other bands in the future.

For a good few years the singer guitarist appeared to be collecting bands as The Raconteurs formed in 2005 and The Dead Weather made their debut in 2009, yet White now dismisses the idea of starting up any more groups.

In an interview with Q, White says that he is being kept busy with The Raconteurs and The Dead Weather and that he is open to the possibility of going solo. White explains that “I won’t join another band again. Three’s enough for one lifetime. If I can’t say it in any of these bands, then I’ll say it by myself”.

I would honestly love a Jack White solo record.

They're average.

It's definitely the worst of his projects.

A Jack White solo record would rock. Also what is going on with the Dead Weather? Disbanded, hiatus?

The Dead Weather are on a break while The Kills, Queens of the Stone Age and the Greenhones all do their thing.

Thought so. I guess the same can be said about Them Crooked Vultures as well. Newledzeppelinmateriallolwut?

Yes, worse than average I think. Every time I hear them I cant believe Jack White is involved. T

Every member of The Dead Weather's main band(s) is better than The Dead Weather.

Seems to defeat the purpose of a super group.

Now is the dawning of the age of the Meg White sideband.

I love the shit outta Dead Weather. One of the best shows I saw last year, and just bought their Sea Of Cowards album on vinyl. I much prefer White on drums than opening his mouth or strumming guitar.

Agree.
Agree.
The guy can sing, though.
When's the new Kills out?

Same, TDW at Oxford Arts is the best gig I've ever seen.

New Kills in March. The single, Satellites, has been out for a few weeks.

This is the complete opposite of every musical thought Ive ever had. I dont think we can be friends anymore.

Mosshart in Discount is run of the mill old school pop punk, in The Kills she's marginally better but the only songs that grabs me are Black Balloon and MEXICO. White does nothing for me in any of his other projects.

You're in a bit of a minority there.

I would go as far to say as she might be totally alone there.

I was going to play on your team when you were talking about The Dead Weather being great... But then you did that.
You're on your own chick!
