After a US political reporter questioned the impact of the drummer’s style on the White Stripe’s legacy, White, Questlove and Karen Elson rushed to her defence
Jack White has weighed in on a week-long online debate about the drumming prowess of his former White Stripes bandmate and ex-wife Meg White.
Following the band’s nomination to the US Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the US political reporter Lachlan Markay tweeted: “The tragedy of the White Stripes is how great they would’ve been with a half decent drummer. Yeah yeah I’ve heard all the ‘but it’s a carefully crafted sound mannnn!’ takes. I’m sorry Meg White was terrible.”
