The Black Keys’ Patrick Carney says Jack White tried to fight him in NYC bar, White Denies It

Jack White spends a lot of time trying to look cool. it generally works, people don’t have a problem with him and give him his respect.

On the other hand, the black keys just rock and stay to themselves and keep writing great records.

So please can you two get along now?

I doubt this argument was about musical purism. It sounds like White confronted Carney to his face – probably about something Carney ran his mouth off about – and Carney backed down, went home, felt ashamed, and tried to get revenge via the internet. Bullying is a real problem in the world that’s finally reaching peak awareness and it sounds like Carney co-opted the term for his own agenda, which doesn’t help the cause at all. Unless Carney can back it up with specifics it sounds like he wasn’t bullied at all, simply confronted, something people who live on the internet can find traumatic. I think accusations like this should be investigated and if they turn out to be false the accusers should be held accountable.

Jack White has not held back his disdain for The Black Keys, and last night that tension apparently came to a head. According to Black Keys drummer Patrick Carney, White attempted to fight him while at a bar in New York City last night.

“I’ve never met Jack White until last night,” Carney explained on Twitter. “He came to a bar in NYC I go to a lot with a few friends and tried to fight me. I don’t fight and don’t get fighting but he was mad!!!”

White has long accused The Black Keys ripping off his sound, and allegedly prevented the band from using his Nashville studio. In May 2014, however, White sought to clarify his thoughts, writing in an open letter, “I wish [the band] all the success that they can get.”
