Jack White Black Keys

June 1, 2014 by  

Jack White Black Keys, Nashville rocker Jack White has offered “an apology and explanation” for statements he made in a recent Rolling Stone cover story, perceived by many readers as critical of fellow Nashville rock act The Black Keys, pop singers Adele, Duffy and Lana Del Rey, and his former bandmate Meg White.

In the interview, White referred to the Black Keys as a “watered-down” version of his former band, The White Stripes, and made a similar analogy between late retro-soul singer Amy Winehouse and current pop successes Adele, Duffy and Lana Del Rey.

A statement posted Saturday on White’s official site titled “An Apology and Explanation from Jack White” finds him changing – or clarifying – his tone.

“I wish the band the Black Keys all the success that they can get,” he says. “I hope the best for their record label Nonesuch who has such a proud history in music, and in their efforts to bring the Black Keys songs to the world. I hope for massive success also for their producer and songwriter Danger Mouse and for the other musicians that their band employs. Lord knows that I can tell you myself how hard it is to get people to pay attention to a two piece band with a plastic guitar, so any attention that the Black Keys can get in this world I wish it for them, and I hope their record stays in the top ten for many months and they have many more successful albums in their career.”

He later continues: “I wish no slight to the talents of Winehouse, Duffy, Lana del Rey, and Adele. All of whom are wonderful performers with amazing voices. I have their records and I hope for more success for them all as the years go on.”
