BONDIES REACT TO JACK'S PLEA: In an exclusive statement to nme.com, the Von Bondies have given their collective opinion on this week's court case:

"Unlike Mr. White, we have been consistent and unwavering in our statement of December 15, 2003: Jason Stollsteimer was violently attacked by Jack White in an unprovoked incident at the Magic Stick nightclub in Detroit on December 13, 2003.
As a result of this incident, Mr. White was arrested and charged with aggravated assault and battery. Mr. Stollsteimer was never charged with any crime.
Now, the facts and evidence have been presented. Mr. Stollsteimer did not, at any time, lay a hand on Mr. White, but was a victim of Mr. White's rage. On March 9, 2004, in ‘People vs. John A. White’, Mr. White pled guilty to the charge of assault and battery on Mr. Stollsteimer. We are glad that the truth has finally been told and that justice has prevailed.
As one of his penalties, Mr White has been ordered to attend anger management classes. We are relieved that this chapter has finally come to a close; Mr White will address his anger issues and both The Von Bondies and Mr. White can get back to doing what they do best: making music."
