The Pagemeister Posted February 2, 2011 Share Posted February 2, 2011 THE WHITE STRIPES The White Stripes chose today, Groundhog Day, to bury their heads in the snow forever. No, there will be no early spring for Jack and Meg White, since they posted a message on their website today stating that they were officially no more. They will make "no further new recordings or perform live" at any point in the future. "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," the suicide note post reads. Indeed, rather than risk outliving their welcome and turning into decrepit characters on stage COUGH MICK JAGGER COUGH they opted to "preserve what is special and beautiful about the band and have it stay that way." That basically means you won't see them aging gracefully on stage together, either. The White Stripes are survived by Jack White's Third Man Records label, which will keep issuing the band's unreleased live and studio recordings through its subscription club. The duo are also survived by Jack White's work with The Raconteurs and The Dead Weather. Both acts have released two albums. Jack and Meg White leave behind a legacy that includes a whopping seven children: 1999's self-titled debut album, 2000's De Stijl, 2001's White Blood Cells, 2003's Elephant, 2005's Get Behind Me Satan and 2007's Icky Thump. http://www.chartattack.com/news/2011/feb/02/in-memory-of-the-white-stripes Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
