Kieran Grant of the Toronto Sun managed to get one of the White Stripes to talk – Meg White wasn’t ready to talk about whether she and Jack were brother and sister or a divorced couple, simply saying “just say we’re brother and sister.” As for the question “Can The White Stripes Save Rock?” Meg laughed, “In a way it’s bad — not bad, but frightening — to have so much responsibility put on your shoulders. We figure, ‘Let’s do the best we can do and if it helps to get music going in a good direction again, even in some little way, then it’s all for the good.’ There’s always been a huge underground of great bands. It’s just that now maybe they’re going to get a chance for a while. However long it lasts, at least it happened.”
