The White Stripes


The White Stripes, hand-drawn here with Meg White age 27 and Jack White age 26 in Detroit, MI 2001.

The White Stripes were an American rock duo from Detroit formed in 1997. The group consisted of Jack White (songwriter, vocals, guitar, piano, and mandolin) and Meg White (drums and vocals).
After releasing several singles and three albums within the Detroit music scene, the White Stripes rose to prominence in 2002 as part of the garage rock revival scene.

In high school, Jack Gillis (as he was then known) met Meg White, a chef at the Memphis Smoke in Royal Oak, MI; where Jack would read his poetry at open mic nights.
By this time, Gillis was already playing drums with musician friends, including his upholstery apprenticeship mentor, Brian Muldoon.
In 1994, he got his first professional job as the drummer for the Detroit cowpunk band Goober & the Peas.

After dating for several years, Gillis and White married on September 21, 1996.
Contrary to convention, he took his wife’s surname. They divorced in 2000.

In 1997, Meg started learning to play the drums. The couple then became a band and, while they considered calling themselves Bazooka and Soda Powder, they settled on The White Stripes.
Meg loved peppermints, and they were going to call themselves the Peppermints. But since their last name was White, they decided to call the band The White Stripes.

From the beginning, they established certain motifs: publicly pretending to be brother and sister, outfitting their production in only black, red, and white, and heavily using the number “three”.
The band dissolved in 2011; a major problem was that Meg never got over her stagefright.

The band has 6 Studio Albums.
Greatest hits: “Seven Nation Army”, “Fell In Love With A Girl”, “Ball And Biscuit”, “Hotel Yorba”, “Dead Leaves And The Dirty Ground”, “My Doorbell”, “Hello Operator”, “Apple Blossom”, “Black Math” and “Screwdriver”.

Their last three albums each won the Grammy Award for Best Alternative Music Album.
In 2015, Rolling Stone named them the sixth greatest duo of all time.

Jack White also founded Third Man Records.
