RE: SPINNER ARTICLE REGARDING THE WHITE STRIPES LOVE FOR CANADA

Taken from Spinner.com:

"Well, White Stripes' guitarist/singer Jack White grew up just a few miles from the bridge that links Detroit, Mich. to Windsor, Ont. and admits his neighbors to the north always fascinated him.

"We lived right next to the bridge to Canada. It's amazing to go a quarter mile from your home to find such a different culture. It felt like going to England," White tells Spinner.

For fans not lucky enough to witness those unusual performances first hand -- which also included playing a daycare, public bus and fishing boat -- director Emmett Malloy's first feature, 'The White Stripes: Under Great White Northern Lights,' documents the duo's off-stage antics and captures blistering performances throughout Canada on stripped-down stages swathed in the band's signature colours: black, white and red.

Coincidentally, the latter two hues are Canada's national colours and the band seized the opportunity to become a rock 'n' roll manifestation of the Canadian flag.

"We made sure to put maple leafs on everything," White tells Spinner."
