NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Jack White has issued a written apology to The Black Keys, his former bandmate Meg White and others over comments he made in a recent Rolling Stone magazine interview.

Last year, his personal opinions about The Black Keys were revealed when his wife included a message from him in their divorce case. He was asked again about the band during the recent interview and told Rolling Stone he felt The Black Keys were capitalizing on a sound he helped make popular.

White explains in a letter dated Saturday on his website that he thought it would have seemed petty if he had declined to discuss the issue with the magazine.

In his letter, he spoke positively of the Black Keys, who are also based in Nashville and got their start as a bluesy two piece like White's own White Stripes.
