The White Stripes Officially Call It Quits

Sad news for all us White Stripes fans, but not altogether surprising. Today it is official; The White Stripes are no more. The band released the following statement:

“The White Stripes do not belong to Meg and Jack anymore. The White Stripes belong to you now and you can do with it whatever you want. The beauty of art and music is that it can last forever if people want it to. Thank you for sharing this experience. Your involvement will never be lost on us and we are truly grateful.”
Kind of a cool way to go out. My memories of the '03 Aragon show will last forever. Great show. My only regret is that it was be the only time I saw The White Stripes live.
