Fleetwood Mac

Thurston and Kim

I was very sad to hear last week that Thurston Moore and Kim Gordon of Sonic Youth had split up.  They were the cool alternative rock couple that seemingly made marriage seem like a great idea.  You could make strange music and tour together and later even have a kid and it all seemed to […]
