When he was playing Boston’s Fenway Park last night, Jack White went into a pretty funny tirade against Rolling Stone, and he also made a quick crack about the Foo Fighters having three guitarists onstage “playing the same parts.” Today, the Foo Fighters made their official response on Twitter:
Busted….behold, the secret of the Foo Fighters sound…. pic.twitter.com/xbUUTwuyAt

Meanwhile, Nasty Little Man, the PR firm that represents both White and the Foos, issued a press release to let the world know that White actually didn’t mean to make fun of the Foos at all. Here’s what it says.
Dear dream-makers of the media….
Last night Jack White made a joke on stage!
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 upmost respect for the Foo Fighters and communicated with 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.
We should respect the sanctity of celebrities’ private lives, but if the text conversation between White and Grohl ever leaked, I would at least take a look.
