Jack White Doesn’t Expect to Play With Meg Again



whitestripesThere won’t be a White Stripes reunion anytime soon, if ever.

The duo of Jack and Meg White split up in 2011. While Jack has been continuing his career as a successful solo artist, Meg has led a private life.

“She doesn’t answer her phone,” Jack White said of Meg during a weekend chat session with Third Man Records’ Vault members.

Jack White was asked if he would consider playing with Meg if she did pick up her phone.

“Nope,” Jack said. “That time is gone.”

Jack was later asked who he would play with if The White Stripes got inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

“Doubt it, and doubt it,” Jack said.

White weighed in on multiple topics during the chat, including touring (“I’d say half the shows i play i’d rather not play. Festivals for example. But i have to make the best of it and try to get inspired.”) and technology (“If i don’t have a cellphone it’s not to be cool or make a point. I just think people look ridiculous holding them and staring at them all day, and if I had one, that’s what I’d be doing as well. I’d be on it all day and it would rob me off a lot of inspiration I think. I’m not telling you not to have one, I’m just telling you why I don’t.”). Click here to check out the transcript.
