When musician Jack Gillis wed bartender Meg White, he took her last name. She, in turn, learned how to play the drums. By 1997, the White Stripes had formed. As the duo began to achieve success, they found different ways to describe their relationship, often telling media they were siblings. They divorced in 2000 while on the cusp of obtaining commercial success. In 2005, Jack explained to Rolling Stone, "When you see a band that is two pieces, husband and wife, boyfriend and girlfriend, you think, 'Oh, I see ...' When they're brother and sister, you go, 'Oh, that's interesting.' You care more about the music, not the relationship -- whether they're trying to save their relationship by being in a band." The duo went on to release six studio albums after their divorce, though in February 2011, they officially parted ways musically as well.
