Jack White Denies Black Keys Bar Fight Story

(Radio.com) The ongoing feud between the Black Keys and Jack White cane to a climax Monday (Sept. 14) after Black Keys drummer Patrick Carney accused White of trying to pick an old-fashioned fight in a bar. Not a Twitter fight, mind you, but a fight in a bar in New York City.

To tell everyone about the encounter, Carney took to Twitter and blasted Jack White for allegedly trying to fight him. "I've never met jack white. Until last night' He came to a bar in Nyc I go to a lot with a few friends and tried to fight me', he wrote in Tweets that have since been deleted, but can be seen on Pitchfork. "I don't fight and don't get fighting but he was mad!!!'"

White, who had wished the Black Keys well in a 2014 open letter, was forced to issue another statement on Monday, in which he discredited Carney's account of events.

"Nobody tried to fight you, Patrick," he said in a statement to Pitchfork. "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." Read more here.
