White Stripes Call It Quits

After 14 years together Jack and Meg White have decided that it is officially time for the White Stripes to come to an end.

The White Stripes announced late Wednesday that they would be no more.  The reason sited, artistic differences. This really doesn’t come at a surprise because both Meg and Jack have been off doing their own things for a few years now.

It’s kind of a loss because since they formed in 1997 they have been putting out their own unique style of rock music.  Their hits Fell In Love With A Girl, Hardest Button To Button, Seven Nation Army, and Icky Thump were a great addition to the modern rock world where everyone seems to do whatever the industry wants.  They made the music they wanted without apology and you have to respect that.  I was never  a huge fan of Jack Whites vocal style, but I was a fan of the band as a whole.  In a statement on their website they said:

The White Stripes do not belong to Meg and Jack anymore. The White Stripes belong to you now and you can do with it whatever you want. The beauty of art and music is that it can last forever if people want it to. Thank you for sharing this experience. Your involvement will never be lost on us and we are truly grateful.

-The White Stripes

Jack and Meg, you will most definitely  be missed by this radio guy.  In a world where Nickelback seems to reign supreme you brought such an interesting sound and style to the table it will be hard to replace.  My favorite album by them is 2003’s Elephant because it just rocks. Plain and simple.  So do yourself a favor, go crank up Seven Nation Army and take in the awesomeness.
