Meg White (drums)
Artistfacts®: You can leave comments about the artist/band at the bottom of the page.
For years, Jack and Meg told people they were brother and sister, concocting elaborate stories about how they grew up together they youngest of 10 children, with Meg learning to play on Jack's drum kit. They were actually married. Jack's real last name was Gillis, but he took her last name when they wed in 1996. The brother-sister story was very believable because they look so much alike. They still refer to each other as siblings.
They are from Detroit, but they are much bigger in England than the US.
On stage, they only wear red, black and white clothes. Jack feels they are the colors of "Anger and innocence."
Jack likes to use dilapidated equipment, like an old guitar the Montgomery Ward department store used to sell, and a beat-up amplifier. He feels it makes him more creative and distinguishes their sound from the slick production so common in modern music.
The Detroit Free Press was the first publication to break the story that Jack and Meg were married. They did so in March, 2001.
Jack was the drummer in a band called Goober And The Peas before forming the White Stripes.
Jack grew up in West Detroit, Meg grew up in Grosse Point, a wealthy suburb.
Jack and Meg both smoke lots of cigarettes, but Jack won't touch alcohol.
Jack collects animal heads. Stuffed ones.
Their album Elephant was released on vinyl before it came out on CD. This helped keep it from getting pirated.
In 2005, Jack married Karen Elson, the model who appeared in the Stripes' "Blue Orchid" video (She's the one who isn't Jack or Meg). (thanks, Jim - Newmarket, Canada)
In December of 2005 they became the first band to ever perform on Comedy Central's The Daily Show. (thanks, Kevin - Linden, NJ)
Jack pled guilty to a misdemeanor assault and battery charge after getting in a fight with Von Bondies lead singer Jason Stollsteimer.
They appeared as themselves on an episode of The Simpsons when Bart organizes a benefit concert to raise money for an operation after his drumming arm is mangled by a tiger in "Jazzy And The Pussycats." (thanks, Bertrand - Paris, France)
Gary Lewis and the Playboys had 7 Top-10 hits despite competition from The Beatles. Gary talks about the hits, his famous father, and getting drafted.
Don breaks down "Hotel California" and other songs he wrote as a member of the Eagles. Now we know where the "warm smell of colitas" came from.

Roger tells the stories behind some of his biggest hits, including "Give a Little Bit," "Take the Long Way Home" and "The Logical Song."
