Jack White: "I Won't Join Another Band Again."
Jack White represents the definition of a musical multi-tasker—just look at all the projects the former White Stripes frontman has in his current arsenal. Despite announcing the end of the White Stripes, White still has two other groups in The Dead Weather and The Raconteurs, as well as collaborations with Wanda Jackson and Danger Mouse. Combine that with his management of Third Man Records, and it’s safe to say he has his hands full to the point where he recently stated that he won’t join any additional bands moving forward.
In a recent interview with Q, White put to rest rumors about any further permanent acts in the wake up of the White Stripes breaking up earlier this month. “I won’t join another band again,” White says. “Three’s enough for one lifetime. If I can’t say it in any of these bands, then I’ll say it by myself.”
Nevertheless, there will be plenty of White’s work to be heard going forward. The guitarist recently recorded a track with Jay-Z and will make an appearance on Danger Mouse and Daniele Luppi’s new record Rome—which will be released on May 17 on Capitol.
