Meg White (b. December 10, 1974) was the drummer and occasional vocalist of The White Stripes. She met Jack White in 1994 while working as a bartender in Detroit, and formed the band with him 1997. They were married from 1996 until she divorced him in 2000. Meg has never taken a lesson. While playing in circles with local garage and punk bands, Meg White's minimalistic, primal drumming style fit in. Since The White Stripes' 2002 breakthrough, it has been the subject of attention. She plays Ludwig Drums with Paiste cymbals, and says her pre-show warm-up consists of "whiskey and Red Bull."
