Black v White


For a long time now, Jack White and The Black Keys’ drummer, Patrick Carney, have been at odds. And, as if to step it up a notch, Carney has now alleged that White recently tried to fight him in a bar, and White isn’t impressed.Jack 11

Carney has been at the top of Jack White’s hit list ever since The White Stripes singer publicly accused The Black Keys man of ripping him off in a series of leaked emails from a custody case.

More recently things seemed to take a more friendly turn when White said he wished the band success— but, scratch that!— Carney recently took to Twitter to claim that after eventually meeting up with White, things took a turn for the worst. The tweets have since disappeared but here is the war of words.

Not sure what he’s unhappy with cuz I just liked Zeppelin a lot and wanted to play guitar. Cut my pinky off and ended up being a drummer

Not the best drummer but a passionate one. But any way jack white. A 40 year old bully tried to fight the 35 year old nerd.

It might get loud but it might also get really really sad and pathetic.

Jack white is basically billy corgan’s dumb ass zero t-shirt in human form.

White has since denied he tried to fight Carney, telling Entertaiment Weekly: “Nobody tried to fight you, Patrick.”


“Nobody touched you or ‘bullied’ you. You were asked a question you couldn’t answer so you walked away. So quit whining to the internet and speak face to face like a human being. End of story.”


There is nothing like a band feud to fuel the gossip pages and here at RMW we’ll keep you informed about any further developments between White and Carney as soon as we have them.
