Jack White: I almost never speak to bandmate Meg

Jack White says ‘I almost never speak to Meg. Best known for as a vocalist for the White Stripes reveals that it is on a rare occasion if band-mate Meg White and himself talk following the split of their band in 2011. He is not with the band anymore, e has followed on his own road doing his own solo career says there is hardly no one from the band that speaks to the drummer. He told Rolling Stone magazine:

”I don’t think anyone talks to Meg. 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.”

Talking about how Meg’s personality came to affect the pair’s relationship, Jack explained:

”She’s one of those people who won’t high five me when I get the touchdown. ”She viewed me that way of, ‘Oh, big deal, you did it, so what?’ Almost every single moment of the White Stripes was like that. 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.
”I remember hearing Ringo Starr say, ‘I always felt sorry for Elvis, because in The Beatles we had each other to talk about what it felt like. Elvis was by himself.’ ”I was like, ‘Shit, try being in a two-piece where the other person doesn’t talk!”’

Although between them their have been differences, he gives much praise to her stage presence and how they worked together as they became a successful duo selling millions of records, the band was formed in1997. He said:

”I would often look at her onstage and say, ‘I can’t believe she’s up there.’ 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.”
