Love, etc.: Kim Gordon and Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth separate

Separated: Alt-rock pioneers Kim Gordon, 58, and Thurston Moore, 53, after 27 years of marriage. Unclear what happened to the Paul Newman/Joanne Woodward of post-punk — or what this means for Sonic Youth, the band they co-founded in 1981. A rep for their record label told Spin late Friday that both will participate in concert dates scheduled in South America next month; nothing decided beyond that. They have a 17-year-old daughter.
