Current Addiction *
The White Stripes

Genre : Garage Rock , Alternative Rock , Punk Blues , Blues-rock
An America Rockband formed in 1997
Jack White and Meg White
Jack White (born John Anthony Gillis)
married Megan Martha White on September 21, 1996
In unorthodox fashion, he took Meg White's surname

Meg White first began to learn to play the drums in 1997
The duo then became a band
calling themselves The White Stripes
In many early interviews Jack claimed that he and Meg were siblings
Jack White claimed that this deception was intended to keep the focus on the music rather than the couples' relationship:
When you see a band that is two pieces, husband and wife, boyfriend and girlfriend, you think, "Oh, I see . . ." When they're brother and sister, you go, "Oh, that's interesting." You care more about the music, not the relationship -- whether they're trying to save their relationship by being in a band.

The couple had been divorced in March of 2000
before the band gained widespread attention

Jack White is a very talented musician with fascinating guitar skills
The White Stripes had won 5 grammy awards which include :

Best Rock Song
Best Alternative Music Performance

and Kate Moss also appears in their MV for the song
" I just don't know what to do with myself "

Favourite :
Seven Nation Army . Girl , You Have No Faith In Medicine . Ball and Biscuit . The Hardest Button to Button . You've Got Her In Your Pocket .
