In a recent interview Jack White spoke out about the criticism his ex-wfie and drummer Meg White. Jack White explained that Meg chooses a minimalistic approach to drumming to avoid over-complication, and added that she has inspired many to pick up the drums.
"Her femininity and extreme minimalism are too much to take for some metalheads and reverse-contrarian hipsters,"
"She can do what those with 'technical prowess' can't. She inspires people to bash on pots and pans. For that, they repay her with gossip and judgement."
White also added:
"In the end she's laughing all the way to the Prada handbag store, she wins every time."
Meg chooses a minimalistic approach to drumming 'cause that's all she's GOT. Like all OTHER simple styled drummers, if they HAD the "chops" they'd most likely USE 'em, same with her.
I STILL say she's not so good, simple or not.
Phil Rudd is a simple player, and he'll mop the floor with MOST drummers with the pocket full'o groove he lays down.
Meg White . . . not so much.
