Jack White has released a statement back tracking from comments he made while onstage about the Foo Fighters.
During a recent concert, which a fan recorded and posted to YouTube, White commented that the Foos have a "second guitar player playing the same parts I play so in case I make a mistake, he's still playing it for you."
The Foo's responded with a photo on Twitter of a monkey playing a guitar and captioning it, "Busted. . . . behold, the secret of the Foo Fighters sound . . ."
"Last night Jack White made a joke on stage!" the statement, released via White's reps, said.
"There was a minor equipment mishap, specifically with his guitar, and in an effort to keep his audience engaged, he made a joke! It was meant to be funny and self-deprecating: 'Hey sorry, you're stuck with just me up here . . .' vs the Foo Fighters who have three guitar players on stage and regularly play stadium shows. Jack has the (utmost) respect for the Foo Fighters and communicated with (Dave) Grohl this morning. So if you'll let us, we'll all continue with our day and we assure you: All is well in the rock n roll world."
