Jack White still in the dark about White Stripes split

Artist News

The White Stripes

Jack White has said he still has no idea why The White Stripes split last year, because his former bandmate Meg White remains tight-lipped about her decision to cease performing in 2007.

White told WENN: “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 on stage, so I’ll take what I can get. 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”.

He added: “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 to ever to happen to me. I wish it was still here. It’s something I really, really miss”.
