With Blunderbuss arriving next month, Jack White is currently immersed in the pre-album press junket-palooza and it didn’t take long before someone asked about the possibility for a White Stripes reunion. Responded Jack to NME: “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?”
“If we were forced to change our mind about that, I can only imagine being the reason (sic), like if for some reason we went bankrupt or something or 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!”
And there you have it. At least he’s playing some oldies at his solo shows.
Blunderbuss is out April 24th via Third Man/Columbia.
