Jack White Says Only Bankruptcy Could Reform The White Stripes

Jack White has ruled out any chance of a White Stripes reunion… unless he goes bankrupt.

White spoke NME on the eve of the release of his debut solo album and Spin reports he said that there was “absolutely no chance” of him reuniting with drummer Meg White.

The year between the White Stripe breaking up and him going solo was specifically to avoid “the dumb perception battle of people who couldn’t be broad-minded enough to understand the difference between Jack White and the White Stripes.”

Yet he did add one sole caveat: “If we were forced to change our mind [and reform], 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.”

Thankfully, the new solo material is sounding great. His first solo album Blunderbuss will be released in late April.
