Doesn't it say that on the run out groove?
I'm listening + looking right now . . . yes, it does say in the runout of side 3: "Meg told me before the show." But I've always assumed that was Jack's comment written in the runout. In the NYT article, Ben makes it sound as though she only told him and not Jack.
>>"Afterward they had a week of U.S. dates scheduled, followed by a break and more shows in the fall. But before their last show, in Southaven, Miss., Meg came to a decision.
“I mentioned this to Jack years later, and he didn’t know anything about it,” Blackwell told me. “But Meg came up to me and said, ‘This is the last White Stripes show.’ I said, ‘You mean, like, of the tour.’ And she was like: ‘No. I think this is the last show, period.’ ”<<
This has made me start to wonder who's been writing those comments in the run-outs . . .
