White Denies White Stripes Aren't Fun

JACK WHITE has blasted claims he's having more fun with his new band THE RACONTEURS than THE WHITE STRIPES. The quirky musician is annoyed at suggestions The Raconteurs are nothing more than a side project to give him some relief from the intense work he puts in on his more successful band The White Stripes. The punk rock band he formed with MEG WHITE are renowned for their strict red and white dress code and precise musicianship, but White admits he revels in that form of constriction. The BROKEN BOY SOLDIER hitmaker says, "People are assuming that the White Stripes is somehow painful for me, or too great a burden. But I love the constrictions of the White Stripes. It really makes my brain do what my brain wants to do."
