You know, it’s not like we all didn’t see it coming. This multi-band-having, multi-instrument-playing, mucho-talent-possessing musician divorced himself from his occasionally maligned musical partner Meg (technically for the second time), and started a solo career which, hey, pretty much just sounds like more solid White Stripes music. So that’s great. But, in the interest of compassion, we’d like to offer an ode to the former Mrs. Stripe. Ahem. You were really nice. You hit those drums well. So well. Ahem. *whistles* Hey, Blunderbuss was okay.
