rite....i keep reading people slaggin off meg white cos she cant drum, and that jack would be better without her. ok, he has the raconteurs now as well, but for the white stripes to work he does NEED meg. the whole point in WS is for things to be simple and meg does that. if she didnt do what she did then there wouldn't be a WS in the first place because jack wouldn't have seen her simplistic style and thought "i can put good guitar in front of that"......sorry for rambling on but she IS needed =)

I'd agree with everyone who says she is a poor drummer. But apart from Jack just thinking he can play over her drumming, the relationship between them and the way they act together on stage adds to the white stripes overall look and effect.
#4
Since it's only a two piece, I don't see how he really could manage without her.

But I think that their chemistry adds a lot to the White Stripes. With another drummer it might be technically better, but wouldn't feel the same.
#5
Yeah, it works. I like the idea of him being a one man band though, get one of them drums you strap to your back

Shouldn't this be in the Modern Rock forum?

She is an abysmal drummer, but it works insanely well for the band.

Seriously, just imagine how bad Seven Nation Army would suck if, say, Danny Carey was the drummer.

EDIT: I do think technically she's really awful. But she works well in the band.
what happened to the proposed Kirk Hammett flamenco album?


His acoustic didn't sound good with wah pedal, I suppose.
#11
to get the white stripes sound, yes she is a sad neccessity, but, the raconteurs show alot better what jack white is about and his true abilities as a player, and for me anyway are a welcome change from the often annoying sounds of the white stripes

But seriously, if Jack did White Stripes with some other drummer, it wouldn't be the White Stripes. It'd be Jack White and some other drummer. He def needs Meg. Anyways, I don't think Meg sucks. She adds to the band musically, to their look and their craziness.

absolutly, meg is 50% part of the white stripes, if it was only jack that would be boring......im missing meg at the moment, i hope jack comes back to the WS soon
#15
Let's figure this out mathematically:

Meg=
Jack=

Meg+Jack=
Some decent drummer+Jack=

In conclusion, Jack needs Meg, other wise they wouldn't be the same.

Let's figure this out mathematically:

Meg=
Jack=

Meg+Jack= But the hearts pump in opposite directions, causing a massive build up of blood. Jack gets the hard-on to end all hard-ons, but alas it explodes (not in that way) and the massive blood loss and flying cock shrapnel kills them both.

Some decent drummer+Jack= One heart might sustain them both, but the exhaustion would render them creatively dead. That or their extemeties would turn black, shrivel and drop off.

Jack= Jack, one man and one heart, no problems.

In conclusion, Jack needs to start a one man band, as I suggested earlier.

I see you can do maths too. I think a one man band would be quite good for him actually, sinse can can play drums, guitar, piano, bass and sing. Although I'm not sure if he can do them all at the same time.

I'd love to see Jack play guitar, bass, piano, drums and sing at the same time.
He could play guitar with one hand, bass with the other, piano with his feet, and drums with his head....while attempting to sing in tune.

Although she plays simple beats it goes with the simple music so it sounds good. She is funny just by being the way she is too.
#22
Every successful band has a talent and a gimmick. Jack White, despite some skeptics, is quite a talented guitarist and musician (eccentric too), and Meg White is the gimmick. Granted a better drummer would be ok, but it really wouldn't be the same.
#23
Seven nation army is the worst song I've ever heard been drummed...So he should really get another drummer, even though some people will say: "but man, she's 50% of White Stripes"....
She still can't drum... That's reason enough to kick her out really...A monkey would be better
#24
What I always thought was cool about the White Stripes is how they can convey so many emotions in their music when they're so simple. And aren't bringing out emotions what makes good music anyway!?
So yeah, I definately like Meg in that band.
#25
If she played really complex beats it would just overpower the songs, and wouldn't fit, so I reckon she's essential.

megs not exactly what you call an excellent drummer, but like other people have said, with her, its the white stripes. without her its jack and a drummer. i think that the band is good where they are now.
