Singer Jack White is dedicated to both his bands, insisting THE White Stripes and The Raconteurs are equally important to him.
Despite forming The Raconteurs as a side project with Brendon Benson, White claims he has big ambitions for both groups.
Currently recording The Raconteurs' second album while promoting The White Stripes latest LP, the rocker says, "I don't think I ever really had a home band. Right now, I'm equally compelled to think about and create for The Raconteurs.
"We wanted that first album (Broken Boy Soldiers) to be off the top of our heads, written and recorded immediately. We've been recording the second album for the last couple of weeks, and man, these songs are nothing like that! They're monsters. The whole album's a lot more intricate than anything I've done before."
