Rocker Jack White has ruled out ever reforming The White Stripes.
The duo split in February last year and White will be releasing his debut solo album, Blunderbuss, next month.
And he's emphatically ruled out ever reuniting with The White Stripes drummer - his ex-wife Meg White - insisting he would have to be penniless to even contemplate a comeback.
White tells NME magazine, "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 being the reason (sic), 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!"
