On this day in 2011, after 27 years of marriage, Kim Gordon and Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth announced they were divorcing.
In February of 2015, Gordon released a memoir titled Girl in a Band, and she didn’t hold back on the sad and dysfunctional relationship.
The pair married in 1984, Gordon believes the changes in their relationship started after their daughter was born. She claims Moore isn’t even close to the feminist he portrayed, and that she was left to raise the child and work… while he continued to do his own things. Gordon revealed Moore had been having an affair with Eva Prinz, a book editor he had worked with for years.
Sonic Youth has sadly disbanded as well.
