White Stripes
I actually just can’t believe they beat me to it. We’ve been covering the White Stripes’ cancellation of their fall tour due to reported “anxiety” and a “breakdown” on the part of drummer Meg White; in the absence of further details, one can’t help but wonder what’s really going on. Well, New York magazine’s got some ideas, ten in fact: their article, “Ten Things That Probably Stressed Out Meg White” is actually in the best of spirits (“get well soon Meg!”) although it does point out her widely-noted “primitivist” drumming style: “couldn’t remember drum part to ‘Seven Nation Army'” is #2. Well, it’s pretty cute, anyway. The Riff loves you too, Meg.
