p2pnet view Music:- The White Stripes are no more.
As of yesterday, the band officially ceased to be “and will make no further new recordings or perform live”, say Meg and Jack on their site.
But, “The reason is not due to artistic differences or lack of wanting to continue, nor any health issues”, they say, going on >>>
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.
Meg and Jack want to thank every one of their fans and admirers for the incredible support they have given throughout the 13 plus years of the White Stripes’ intense and incredible career.
Third Man Records will continue to put out unreleased live and studio recordings from The White Stripes in their Vault Subscription record club, as well as through regular channels.
Both Meg and Jack hope this decision isn’t met with sorrow by their fans but that it is seen as a positive move done out of respect for the art and music that the band has created. It is also done with the utmost respect to those fans who’ve shared in those creations, with their feelings considered greatly.
With that in mind the band have this to say:
“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.”
But Hey! When Meg and Jack say “The White Stripes belong to you now and you can do with it whatever you want” do you think they mean that literally?
Like, can people can mix, add to, subtract from, and so on, without getting their asses sued, do you think?
