"People define things by the label you give them," White argues
The former White Stripes frontman releases his third solo record ‘Boarding House Reach’ on March 23, recently speaking to Rolling Stone about how he puts certain songs aside for Dead Weather or Raconteurs albums.
“That doesn’t really happen too much,” he added. “I’m not telling people what to think about The White Stripes. They can think whatever they want about it. But there is a case to be made that in a lot of ways, The White Stripes is Jack White solo. In a lot of ways.”
“There’s only two people in the band,” White continued. “I was writing and producing and conducting. The melodies are coming from one person, the rhythm is coming from Meg.”
Asked about the chances of a future White Stripes reunion, White responded: “I highly doubt that would ever be a thing.”
White recently declared that “rock n’ roll needs an injection of new blood” in order to dominate festival line-ups once again.
“Rock ‘n’ roll needs an injection of some new young blood to really just knock everybody dead right now,” said White.
“It think it’s brewing and brewing and it’s about to happen. And I think that it’s good. Since rock ‘n’ roll’s inception, every 10, 12 years, there’s a breath of fresh air and a new injection of some sort of what you could I guess call ‘punk attitude’ or something like that, a wildness.”
