Some pretty sad news out of The White Stripes camp today. After 13 or so years of being a band, Meg and Jack have decided to call it quits. No more live shows and no more new recordings. They issued a statement this morning on the band’s site that you can see here. As kids who first heard The White Stripes when we were in the 6th grade, it’s pretty hard to stomach. We’re sure there will be plenty of talk about this all over the place, but more than anything we just strongly encourage you to read their statement and keep your chin up.
