The good news is that Jack White‘s solo album is shaping up nicely. The bad news, for White Stripes fans, is that Jack doesn’t seem too open to a White Stripes reunion. “Absolutely no chance,” says Jack.

“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 that, I can only imagine… like if for some reason we went bankrupt or something or needed the cash, which would be a really sad thing, I would probably be issuing an apology along with the announcement of the show dates!”
