There's gotta be some WS fans here: http://www.whitestripes.com/

There's been a lot of rumors about this happening ever since they cancelled their tour dates back in 2007, but I was holding on to hope that it wouldn't happen. Easily one of my all-time favorite bands (second only to Modest Mouse), and I'm saddened by the news. I think the worst part is that I never got to see them live. I'm really hoping for a reunion eventually.

Edit: Here's a download of their last live performance, closing out the last show of Late Night With Conan O'Brien almost 2 years ago. Jack looks to be holding back tears at some parts; wonder if he knew this was the last time he and Meg would be sharing the stage.

yeah, read about this earlier, i only got to see them once, but they put on a great show. can't believe that they haven't toured since 2007. sad way to go out, should have at least done one last tour :cry:

jack says that he is going to continue to release unreleased stuff from their vault though, so at least we'll get some more music.

That's really sad, yeah. Ive only heard White Blood Cells but it's one of my favorite albums.
Also just to put it out there they should issue less vinyl. There's a fine line between pleasing and pissing off your fans. :P

That's a real killer, isn't it.

I'm really speechless right now.

Brother, sister, married, bandmates, divorced and broke up.

Rock and roll.

And bring on the vinyl. Love every bit of it.

Still sad to see the band disbanded.
