Brendan Benson Shoots Down Potential Raconteurs Reunion

It's off the table...
If you've been hanging onto hope that The Raconteurs will reunite this year, I have bad news. While Jack White did note last year that the members of the group are all living in Nashville, Brendan Benson told Billboard that a reunion isn't happening.
"That's kind of off the table," Benson told the site of a potential reunion. "It always felt spontaneous. I liked that about it, too. And I think it remains that way. We never planned anything. We never planned a breakup. All of us but one live in the same town, so [in the future] it could very well happen… or not."
He also talked about trading in his performing career for his new label Readymade Records, noting, "Since I started the label, I have been going through this transition, and it's almost like an identity crisis – like leaving my solo career a bit. I'm still going to make records."
