The White Stripes has just announced on the band website that Jack and Meg White will be calling it quits. The message says, “The reason 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.” Thanking fans, the band continues to state that “The White Stripes belong to you now and you can do with it whatever you want.”

Jack White still has his plate full with his very active Third Man Records and the possibility for future work with supergroup the Dead Weather.
