Jack White: 'Meg Was Uninterested In White Stripes'
Jack White says his former bandmate and wife Meg White was "uninterested" the the White Stripes. The band officially split in February 2011, but Jack says Meg never shared his enthusiasm during the peak of their popularity since releasing "White Blood Cells" in 2001. "It was impossible to share the good moments with Meg because she was very uninterested," Jack told Esquire (via NME). "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, and the engineer would just be sitting there. "It'd be sorta like, 'OK... Let's just move on to the next one.' It was just me by myself. But it was the best thing for me. It taught me a lot about trusting my gut." But Jack doesn't mean to knock Meg down, and said there's a lot of great things about her that the world will never see. "There's beautiful moments that no one will ever know about," he said. "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." Jack's debut solo album "Blunderbuss" is currently in the running for our 2012 album of the year. Place your votes here to help us find a winner.
