The White Stripes broke up a few years ago. While Jack White continues to be a musical ambassador and releases albums, and is insanely quotable, the guitarist's former bandmate and ex-wife, drummer Meg White, is thoroughly off the grid. Not even he is in touch with her.
"I don't think anyone talks to Meg," the alt rocker told Rolling Stone. "She's always been a hermit. When we lived in Detroit, I'd have to drive over to her house if I wanted to talk to her, so now it's almost never."
He furthered, "She's one of those people who won't high-five me when I get the touchdown. We'd be working in the studio and something amazing would happen. I'm like, 'Damn, we just broke into a new world right there!' And Meg's sitting in silence."
Sounds like Meg is distant, on an emotional level while in the studio.
That said, White espoused her importance to him and their band, saying, "I don't think she understood how important she was to the band, and to me, and to music. She was the antithesis of a modern drummer. So childlike and incredible and inspiring. All the not-talking didn't matter, because onstage? Nothing I do will top that."
