Jack White is sticking up for his White Stripes cohort Meg White, after a tweet insulting Meg’s drumming went viral.
It started with a comment from journalist Lachlan Markay, dismissing Meg White as a “terrible” drummer who held the band back.
Jack White responded to the discourse with a poem, while other stars like Questlove defended her as well.
“I try to leave “troll views” alone but this right here is out of line af. Actually what is wrong w music is people choking the life out of music like an Instagram filter—-trying to reach a high of music perfection that doesn’t even serve the song (or music)” Questlove tweeted.
Markay ended up deleting the original tweet and offering an apology. The White Stripes are among the 2023 nominees for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
