Sort of sad news this morning about the White Stripes announcing that they won’t record any more songs or perform live.
They’ve always been a particular favourite of mine.
Meg was so low profile in recent years that the announcement is no surprise.
It’s always good to quit before the creative juices run dry, but Jack’s creative juices are well and truly flowing.
And if any genre of music can hold its own year after year, its the White Stripes stripped down blend of blues, rock and gospel and more.
Still, thanks for some great, wild, primeval music.
