White Stripes fans, rejoice: after having hinted at a possible end to the band’s hiatus back in April, Jack White announced during an interview with Vanity Fair this month that he and Meg White will be begin recording new Whites Stripes material soon, now that Jack’s five million and seven side endeavors, along with various White Stripes projects, are out of the way.
There’s good news for those who miss the originally Detroit-based rock duo, The White Stripes. After all his outings with The Raconteurs and The Dead Weather, Jack White has finally realized that he’s missed being in a band with his ex-wife, Meg White. Meg, whose anxiety caused the band to cancel a few shows back in 2007, is now said to be much better so the band can take off again.
We previously announced how The White Stripes will officially be premiering their documentary, Under Great White Northern Lights, in the States during SXSW2010 but now we have some great news for those of you who can’t make it or just simply can’t wait. The band is taking their documentary on tour where fans can screen the film in their hometown theaters across the nation.
Jack White has recently directed the latest music video for The Dead Weather’s new single “I Cut Like a Buffalo.” The video mixes vivid colors and black and white footage throughout the piece and was shot in Nashville at the headquarters of The White Stripes frontman’s label, Third Man.
Last night was the last time Conan would be airing at the late night slot. It was bittersweet to watch, but when he’s finally on an hour earlier during the tonight slot in June, we’ll all be a little happier. Conan was making a pretty big deal about this as well, and he was careful when it came to choosing his musical guest for this last show.
After Conan called them “good friends for many years,” The White Stripes appropriately played “We Are Going To Be Friends” to close out the show. There weren’t any drums (oh well), but Meg wasn’t really impressive on the guitar playing either. Watch the video for yourself and let us know what you think.
Was the performance perfect or tragically lackluster?
