Jack White: 'A White Stripes Reunion Could Never Happen'
3
Jack White has said that The White Stripes will never get back together. When asked if a reunion would ever be on the cards, the Nashville singer told Dutch news station Newsuur, "No. I don't think that could ever happen; it's all done. But the lord works in mysterious ways so there'll probably be something better come out of me one day. I hope so, I've got nothing better to do." White also opened up about his views on being an artist, elaborating that he'd only had three holidays in his life which were all "very short" and that he had never had any desire to spend time at parties or doing drugs. He said: "I feel a responsibility to the music; I've given myself away a long time ago. That's what I do and that's what consumes me every day. I can have a house and a car and have children, and I can go out to eat and do that stuff too, but it's all second and third place to what I've already given myself away to. I can't help myself." The multi-instrumentalist, who also runs vinyl-only label Third Man Records, recently spoke about his feelings regarding the lack of romance involved in modern music technology, explaining that "digital and invisible things make you feel like some other being is in charge of this somewhere else". White also played at UK at London's O2 Academy Brixton and BBC Radio One's Hackney Weekend last week, following the release of his debut solo LP "Blunderbuss". He will headline London's Roundhouse on September 8 as part of the iTunes festival. Thanks for the report to NME.com.

    This breaking news absolutely blew my mind. Jack White doesn't like digital music?! Jack White doesn't think the White Stripes will reunite?! Glad I was sitting down when I read this article.

    I think he is a great artist ... Musician... And producer... But with music industry in the crapper due to digital poptard shit it becomes hard to get real rock and roll and metal into the forefront again.

    Jack will never be satisfied. His style is struggle.

    I can't say that I'm disappointed since he kicks ass wit his solo stuff, but I wish Meg would do more stuff or get out there a bit.

    To be fair, the iTunes festival is video, not audio. Totally different for Mr. White's personally take on audio production.
