The White Stripes To Stop Playing?

A little trip to Beck's house to record the B-sides to their latest single "Conquest" may have prompted Jack White to have second thoughts about playing live again.

When asked by the LA Times if the White Stripes would ever become a studio band; White responded, "Well, the Beatles did it...I'm joking, but if we didn't ever tour again it doesn't matter to me… There are so many different aspects to being creative that it doesn't matter if one component is changed. Because it's been changing all the time since the band started...Maybe working at Beck's house was something we needed to do to remind ourselves that touring is only one component of what we do."

I have a feeling that this isn't the last you'll see of the band live...but if you've caught them live before then consider yourselves lucky.
