For what it's worth, this is from the recent David Fricke review of a Thurston gig:
Unmentioned during the evening: the fate of Sonic Youth. He and bassist Kim Gordon separated last year, after 24 years of marriage. Moore did not play any of his compositions for the band in this show. But before the music started, he sent birthday wishes to Sonic Youth guitarist Lee Ranaldo, who was in the audience. Notably, Moore referred to him as "my bandmate," suggesting the present tense is still in effect.
