So, just to end any speculation about the band's demise, Ben Blackwell clears the air:|
"funny how things get blown out of proportion. what i said in the kerrang interview was that if you ask people in ENGLAND they'll tell you the white stripes are about to be done. was kinda making reference to all the gossip and like that coming from the UK music press. i know well that it's not the case and that's why i said jack mentioned nothing to me about it. so i got semi-misquoted and it ends up everywhere. let that be a lesson to everyone.
