Yesterday the White Stripes posted on their website that the band is done. The following was on their site.
“The White Stripes would like to announce that today, February 2nd, 2011,
their band has officially ended and will make no further new recordings or perform live.
The reason 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.”
I’ve enjoyed their music for many years, and hearing that they’re over is hard for me to grasp.
