AUDIO: The White Stripes (2001)

Ira Robbins, Rock's Backpages, 1 June 2001

Backstage at the Bowery Ballroom, the Stripes talk about their stage show: what they play; what can go wrong; having Ray Davies in the audience; great shows, and disasters; hating corporate sponsorship; being in the sights of major labels; their support acts; Jack's complicated relationship with the blues; his dislike of the rock press; dealing with hecklers; rock in Detroit, and Meg's drum kit!
