Vale the White Stripes
The White Stripes have announced that they have split up. I guess they hadn't released any new material for a while and Jack White has his fingers in a number of tasty pies so it's hardly a surprise. I really loved their albums but I saw them once at a festival and it just felt like I was being yelled at for an hour. I left with a headache and hearing loss from Jack's high end guitar. Oh well, in a world full of Nickelback, they were pretty awesome for a band with a pretty flimsy concept (red/white, brother/sister, guitar/drums etc...). Long may they live on in our hearts and hearing loss...
