Jack White - The White Stripes Would Only Reform If They Were Bankrupt

Jack White says the only way he would reform The White Stripes is if he were bankrupt.

The musician officially ended his group with drummer Meg White official last February, and although there has been a spate of reunions and reformations by other bands in recent history, he would only revisit his former project if he was forced to.

He said: ''Absolutely no chance. I couldn't see any reason to ever do that. I'm not the kind of person that would retire from baseball and come out of retirement the next year. I mean, if we went to all the trouble of telling people we're done, we meant it, you know?

''If we were forced to change our mind about it, I can only imagine the reason being if we went bankrupt or something or needed the cash, which would be a really sad thing.

''I would probably be issuing an apology with the announcement of the show dates.''

Jack also admitted one of the reasons he and Meg made the announcement, four years after their last album, was so he could start fresh, with his solo career.

He added to NME Magazine: ''One of the reasons I wanted Meg to come to a decision with me, and officially put an end to it was my solo career. I said eventually - I had to plans at the time - but eventually, I'm going to put a record out by myself, under my own name, and I don't' really feel like going through a dumb perception battle of people who couldn't be broad minded enough to understand the difference between Jack White and the White Stripes.''
