    Question what are the chances of the white stripes playing?

    im a mega fan, saw them at the Roo (waited 8 hours at the same stage to guarantee a good spot, battled dehydration, heat stroke, and the decemberists), and at house of blues in myrtle beach, before that cunt meg canceled the tour, but i feel like a gig at coachella would be a next logical step, or maybe its just wishful thinking

    theres always been the grand tradition of bands headlining a music fest one year, then another one the following, i mean RHCP, radiohead, daft punk etc. etc.

    could the white stripes maybe be the next band on the list?

    I remember when NME reported that the White Stripes claim they may NEVER tour again. I think a few more outlets picked up the story like Pitchfork. I'm not sure how true it is because NME can be kind of dodgy at times.

    If they never tour again, I'll be pissed.

    Chicago was supposed to be the first stop on their tour. Then they moved it to the end.

    I was ok with that.

    Then a couple of weeks before the shows they cancel their tour, leaving us high and dry.

    Now I may never see them ever?

    Bullshit I say.

    If they never tour again, hallelujah.

    All I'd need is for Meg to have another nervous breakdown during a recording session, and I won't have to deal with TWS ever again! WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.

    well she is a cunt, her job is not nearly as hard as jack's, and because of her the entire tour got canceled

    they reported they may never again because jack stated and im quoting "its all up to meg..."

    he basically put it on her, which blows, but i know for sure that this isnt the ned of the white stripes

    to that guy in chicago, im sorry man, i really am, that hurts, i live in miami, most bands (stripes included) dont even TOUCH florida, if i was going to ever see them live i had to travel

    God, what a self-absorbed, lazy bitch. If you're feeling "anxiety" after all these years of having no problem getting your ass on-stage, pop a couple clonopin and get over yourself.

    Complete control freak. Haven't fans seen how he treats meg? He's definately abuses her on some level. Yeah, I am gonna get shit for saying it. They played a show in San Francisco the day of Meg's birthday a few years ago and you could see him screaming at her on the side of the stage screaming at her because her drumming was off then he cut the show short. They only played for like 40 minutes, if that.

    Jack is partially to blame for her anxiety.

    The Djali Zwan was pretty great, though. Too bad it came to nothing.

    Hopefully Jack won't break up the White Stripes only to reconvene them with some random-ass drummer and try to pathetically recapture the past with a shitty album.

    There would be a difference?

    Seriously, I don't see how you can call Jack's attitude towards Megs as "controlling" since TWS are virtually a solo project. Hell, Jack White could put out a solo album and most of you TWS fans would be content because it would be exactly the same as any of the other TWS material.

    I mean, fuck, it's just the mentality that after Jack does EVERY fucking thing in the band, and she can't do the simple, child-like drumming right!? Yeah, stupidity like that definitely entails verbal abuse, and from a veritable cunt like Jack White (who needs Brendan Benson to sound anything close to sensible [aka The Raconteurs >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> TWS]) that's definitely going to occur.

    Nothing deserves verbal abuse. Jack wanted her to drum. Jack keeps her drumming to "child-like". If he wanted a more experienced drummer he would have sought one out from the get. If it is so much his band and he does all the work why would he say it was up to her whether they toured? Why wouldn't he just find someone else? The fact that he said that publicly just makes me believe even more that he pressures her which leads to the shit she is dealing with mentally.

    If you watch their interaction he definitely looks like some freaking scary abuser, imo.

    Like, if you actually have anyone a reason to believe your "theories" about abusive Jack, maybe you would have some credibility. I'm a pretty big fan of the Stripes and I'm pretty sure Jack isn't a control freak.

    i saw them at bonnaroo and all i felt was love between the two, he played that song "a martyr for my love for you" and sang the ending parts right to her face, the whole crowd (or maybe just the people around me, or maybe just my head) went "ooohhhh", like you would do in elementary school

    i always saw meg as jack's muse, her role in the band isnt very important physically, but shes there for a reason, she probably inspires him like no other, i think jack will always be in lover with her, but then again thats just me

    especially considering Icky Thump took three weeks to record and that was the longest the White Stripes have ever taken to record an album by a long shot. You would think if he was a control freak it would take months in the studio before anything got done.

    I'm pretty sure a bunch of White Stripes shows got cancelled because Meg has super bad travel anxiety. My guess is no deals for coach.

    I agree. Why else would he stay in a band with his ex-wife for this long, especially since he's remarried and fathered a child? I always got the sense that there was a deep bond between them, deeper than a conventional romantic relationship but somewhat similar.

    The Djali Zwan. Have not thought about that one for a while. I was also one of the few that saw that incarnation.

    And The Raconteurs are so boring.

    never really been able to get into their live shows. might be because I am usually far back. might be because Meg can't keep a beat. love to listen to their live shows on my ipod though, weird. I think I'd rather have The Raconteurs again.
