Despite having ruled out a reunion, the ex-frontman said that if it were up to him, the band would still be together.
Speaking to The New York Times, White said: "I'd make a White Stripes record right now. I'd be in the White Stripes for the rest of my life.
"That band is the most challenging, important, fulfilling thing ever to happen to me. I wish it was still here. It's something I really, really miss."
White also spoke about the role his ex-wife and White Stripes drummer Meg White played in the split, claiming that she has never explained her reasoning for breaking up the band.
He said: "Meg completely controlled the White Stripes. She's the most stubborn person I've ever met, and you don't even get to know the reasons."
White is due to begin his solo tour of the UK at London's Hammersmith Apollo on June 22, following an extensive US tour.
His debut solo album Blunderbuss will be released in the UK on April 23.
