Five Years Ago Today – The White Stripes Break Up (Watch Live in Sydney 2003)

Five years ago today (2/2/11) the duo known as the The White Stripes announced that they had officially ceased recording and performing music as the White Stripes. In a statement on the group’s website, frontman Jack White and drummer Meg White write, “The reason is not due to artistic differences or lack of wanting to continue, nor any health issues as both Meg and Jack are feeling fine and in good health. It’s for a myriad of reasons, but mostly to preserve what is beautiful and special about the band and have it stay that way.” Watch out the full performance of The White Stripes performing in Sydney Australia in 2003.
