Well, there you have it. Meg's influences.
Actually Jack wrote that stuff about the drummers, not Meg. He says in the Interview Magazine interview (July or August of 2007) that he misses instrumental virtuosos and the swing feel in music. He says there are not enough players in popluar music today that are known for playing an instrument and he mentions those masters of swing in the liner notes b/c of this.
Meg didn't talk much in the interview.
Personally, I like Meg's drumming, and I love the White Stripes.
