Singer/guitarist Jack White continues to make news from his recent interview with Esquire magazine, following his controversial remarks about Lady Gaga. In another excerpt from the article, White admits that it was difficult to share the good moments in his former band, the White Stripes, with drummer Meg White because she was usually "uninterested."
Jack explained, "In the White Stripes, it was impossible to share the good moments with Meg because she was very uninterested. If something nice happened, it wasn't like we would hug or have a drink. That wasn't what went on." He added, "We would record a White Stripes song in the studio and it would be me, Meg and an engineer. So we would finish a mix of a song and I'd say, 'Wow! That's pretty good!' I'd look around and Meg would just be sitting there."
Jack admitted, however, that there were also moments that he and Meg shared that may never be revealed, saying, "It's strange to know that there's beautiful moments that no one will ever know about. It's whether I'm going to tell you, because Meg's never going to tell you. There's a sadness to that, a romance."
Although they posed as brother and sister in the band, Jack and Meg White were actually married from 1996 to 2000. They divorced before the duo became international stars in 2001.
The White Stripes canceled a fall tour in 2007 due to Meg suffering from "anxiety" and never played live again, announcing their break-up in early 2011.
Jack has played with the Raconteurs and the Dead Weather, while also issuing his first solo album, the Grammy-nominated Blunderbuss, earlier this year. Meg has virtually disappeared from public life since the Stripes disbanded.
