Guitarist and vocalist Jack White and drummer Meg White, of the White Stripes, have just released their sixth LP, called Icky Thump.
The two have tried to keep their relationship a mystery, claiming at various times to be brother and sister or husband and wife. (The truth, confirmed by numerous sources, is that they're a divorced couple. )
One reviewer writes that "the White Stripes are grounded in punk and blues, but the undercurrent to all of their work has been ... striving for simplicity, a love of American folk music, and a careful approach to intriguing, emotional and evocative lyrics." This interview first aired on June 9, 2005.
