Jack White has revealed that he found it hard to share the band highlights with his former White Stripes partner Meg.
Jack White told Esquire she always seemed "very uninterested" and this affected the group dynamic.
Off the recording process he said:
"So we would finish a mix of a song and I'd say, 'Wow! That's pretty good!' I'd look around and Meg would just be sitting there, and the engineer would just be sitting there."
He continued: "So it'd be sorta like, 'OK... Let's just move on to the next one.' It was just me by myself. But it was the best thing for me. It taught me a lot about trusting my gut," he explained.
"It's strange to know that there's beautiful moments that no one will ever know about," he commented. "It's whether I'm going to tell you, because Meg's never going to tell you. There's a sadness to that, a romance."
Jack White released his debut solo album Blunderbuss earlier this year.
