Given that Jack White has nine million other musical projects in the works at all hours of the day, it’s not such a hard thing to stomach the news that the White Stripes have officially called it quites.
According to Stereogum, “Jack and Meg explain that the breakup is “not due to artistic differences or lack of wanting to continue, nor any health issues as both Meg and Jack are feeling fine and in good health. It is for a myriad of reasons, but mostly to preserve what is beautiful and special about the band and have it stay that way.” Jack will continue releasing rare White Stripes recordings via Third Man’s subscription club.”
Sad face emoticon. Here they are doing one of my favorite tunes, “Hotel Yorba.”
