Il recente passato torna. Jack White contro Patrick Carney fino a ieri era stata solo una “guerra” via social. Fino a ieri, visto che via Twitter il batterista dei Black Keys racconta: “I’ve never met Jack White until last night. He came to a bar in Nyc [sic] 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!!! He is why I play music. The bully assholes who made me feel like nothing. Music was a private non competitive thing. 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”. Attendiamo sviluppi.
La risposta di Jack White non si fa attendere: “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.”
Qualche ora dopo attraverso il profilo della Third Man Records: “From one musician to another, you have my respect Patrick Carney”.
UPDATE – Carney scrive conciliante: “Talked to jack for an hour he’s cool. All good”.
