Megan Martha "Meg" White (born December 10, 1974) is an American drummer best known as one half of the Detroit rock duo The White Stripes, with her ex-husband Jack White.
Meg White was born in Grosse Pointe Farms, Michigan to Walter Hackett White, Jr. and Catherine White. She grew up in the Detroit area with her parents and sister Heather.
Jack White spent much of the 1990s hopping from band to band. In 1997, Meg first tried playing drums. In Jack's words, "When she started to play drums with me, just on a lark, it felt liberating and refreshing. There was something in it that opened me up." The two then began calling themselves The White Stripes and soon played their first gig at the Gold Dollar in Detroit. In keeping live performances to three basic elements, Jack did the guitar and vocal work while she played drums.
