The former garage rocker says there will be no reconciliation for the band. According to Jack, he and Meg have a mutual understanding when it comes to never getting back together – unless one thing happens:
“If we were forced to change our mind about that, I can only imagine the reason being if we went bankrupt or really needed the cash, which would be a really sad thing. I would probably be issuing an apology along with the announcement of the show dates.”
He even throws a little baseball analogy while emphasizing his anti-White Stripes stance.
“I would probably say absolutely not. Absolutely no chance. I couldn’t see any reason to ever do that. I’m not the kind of person that would retire from baseball and come out of retirement the next year. I mean, if we went to all the trouble of telling people we’re done, we meant it you know?”
Since there won’t be music from The White Stripes anytime soon, later, or 10 years from now, fans should get ready for his solo debut album Blunderbuss April 23rd.
You can also check him out at his first solo UK show at London’s HMV Hammersmith Apollo on June 22.
