“In The White Stripes, it was impossible to share the good moments with Meg because she was very uninterested. If something nice happened, it wasn’t like we would hug or have a drink. That wasn’t what went on.”  Continue reading “Meg White Wasn’t Very Happy About Anything When She Was in The White Stripes”
