Jack White is missing ‘The White Stripes’
At this moment in time we do not know what Jack White really wants. One moment he is saying that he will not reform the band unless he goes bankrupt and the next he says that he really misses ‘The White Stripes’. This comes at a time when he is set to release a debut solo album on the 23rd of April which is titled ‘Blunderbuss’. He then says that the split was not up to him alone and that he would take the chance to make a record with them. The singer was giving an interview to the New York Times: “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”. That is too bad because he threw it all away.
The bands and the egos that drive them
Outsiders may not have all the facts behind the split but we certainly know that Jack White had an important role to play. He says that he spoke to their drummer Meg White about the status of the group before splitting up. The singer says that he felt that things had to be brought to a climax one way or the other because they could not continue to trudge along as if nothing was happening: “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.” He says that Meg was controlling the band and was quite stubborn. This sounds a bit like self justification.
In any case he seems to be doing well so far. The weird video for his current single ‘Sixteen Saltines’ was released last week and that has kept him in the papers. His debut solo single ‘Love Interruption’ was deemed to be a critical and commercial success. The singer is working with famous names like AG Rojas and we cannot understand why he is going on about something that happened in the past. ‘The White Stripes’ band has settled for decision to split and he needs to be content with that and move on with his life.
