'White Stripes finished while on top'


Jack White told the BBC's Mark Coles about the release of his debut solo album Blunderbuss.

After near-unanimous rave reviews, the American musician explained: "This was the first time I could walk away, do other things, and come back to it."

The former front man with The White Stripes, one of the most successful rock groups of the past decade, said the band "finished while we were on top."

Asked if there were personal messages of anger in the album, he admitted: "I would never purposely sing a song about someone I love, I wouldn't want to embarrass them. But for someone I don't like... I would definitely do that."
