The White Stripes Officially Break Up

The White Stripes Statement

So much for the reunion. According to an announcement on their site (which is currently down), Jack and Meg explain that the breakup 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.” Jack will continue releasing rare White Stripes recordings (and ostensibly battling ebay flippers) via Third Man’s subscription club. You’ll be able to read the statement at whitestripes.com, once the site’s servers recover. Or you can read it here:
