Because of Tripe's comments about Meg, I have dedicated my music listening to discovering the reason her primitive drum playing sounds superior to all other drum playing.  However, I think he is bat-shit insane in saying that she is fugly.  She's not a 10, but she's erotic as hell.

   I think she's got a nice, 70's mod look to her. Perhaps it's the artist in me, but I appreciate people who are attractive in unique and subtle ways. Speaking as a straight woman who appreciates beauty in both genders, she's not drop dead gorgeous, but she is extremely striking.

   And her drum playing sounds awesome because it sounds primative, IMO. Seeing as how it was probably the very first instrument mankind fashioned, I've always felt that drums should sound primative. For an example, one reason "We Will Rock You" is so iconically cool is the simplicity of the drum riff, and the ability for large crowds of people to pull it off with no instruments at all (like at sports events). Primative music at its best.

I agree.  The music they play is very primal.  It's a folk-blues-punk explosion.  A lot of the earlier songs were punked-out Dylan covers, which is why I started listening to them.  I'm a big Dylan fan.  Usually when I express my love of Dylan the first thing people do is imitate how they think his voice sounds.  That is pretty funny to me because that's what I used to think.  His voice is pretty rough, but if you listen to the melody and his voice and the words together, his voice makes sense being rough.

The thing I love about the White Stripes is the mix of the privative sounds, plus the crazy esoteric avant garde crap like the guitar lick in Icky Thump... Grew up on blues and etc, but my mind was warped by being introduced to Tom Waits when I was 15 and going from there...  It amazes me this group is popular though.  Didn't they once cover a Captain Beefheart song too?

I find Meg White attractive and her drumming appropriate for the situation. All other arguments matter not to me.

The band's P.R. flacks have categorically denied that it's Meg White in the tape.  Just somebody that looks like her.

Of course, they would say that...

Did you watch the video Pyro?  That's not Meg White.  Thanks for damaging me.   ;D
