The White Stripes, the legendary alternative music duo featuring the former married couple, Jack and Meg White, have called it quits as an act. The couple actually divorced way back in 2000 just before attaining success, but continued to perform together for professional reasons after the four year marriage dissolved. With six albums and 26 singles behind the act, they attained a huge degree of success for in the world of alternative rock music.
In 2003, the act hit #1 on the album charts with ELEPHANT in the UK and #6 in the U.S., and followed up that success with GET BEHIND ME SATAN(2005) and ICKY THUMP(2007), but seemed to be on an extended hiatus since. However, the news of the professional breakup still had to a disappointment to millions of fans of the act.
Some singles such as "Seven Nation Army" brought the band a huge degree of success and acted as a great promotion for the act.
I think this act had a lot more good music in them. Maybe, as a Jack White solo act more good stuff will still emerge. One can only hope.
