Some of they used to, years ago (I was here under a different username), the moderator once released their usernames, and then I found out I had been exchanging messages about guitar strings with someone who was actually Lee. That was pretty cool!

Some could say it's a sign of lack of commitment, but that certainly wasn't shown for the vast majority of the past 27 years in this case.

Damn, I'm starting to feel kinda slimy up here in this thread.

I would love to have a long term relationship and not get married. Getting married messes everything up. Oh and yes, I see women as equals.

Sigh. And I'm totally grateful for all the music and media they've given us over the years. If they don't continue as SY, so be it. We have boatloads of Sonic Youth, and that won't go away. They've done enough for the public. How about we give them some respect and just give up on the speculation. We'll probably hear more later somehow anyways. Anyhow, I hope that whatever path they take, they each take the one that's best for them as individuals.

Personally, I'm almost at the point where I don't know if I could trust someone who wanted to marry me

Yeah, but would you care to explain why Kim Gordon would be the one who has to leave the band in these ridiculous speculations of yours? Is she a less talented member of it?

I speculated about that happening and then stopped to ask myself the same question. One would imagine that given Mark Ibold played bass live before he could do so again if needed, but on reflection i dont think it would work in the long term. You can find someone with just as much musical ability, but its about much more than that, especially live.

i feel quite sickened today. Working (with a headcold) on some college work at home and have Sonic Youth playing all the time. Did the obligatory Facebook update with my frustrations about The possible Splitting up of the band and no one cares. Guess it brings home how niche they still are. I remember people moaning online about Amy Winehouse dying earlier this year or the worldwide eulogies for Steve Jobs. Sonic Youth ending is possibly the worst news regarding interests and things I love I can ever remember.

Is Kim Less talented than Steve, Lee, and Thurston?

Of course she is. She's wonderful, and she makes the band, but as a musician she's not even in the same game, let alone league, let alone ballpark.
Sorry.

I love her, and worship her, and her voice can bring me to tears, but I've seen them live enough to know that she's not a particularly gifted musician. Her contributions are more aesthetic and thematic and lyrical.

She's not less talented, I guess- but she's not talented in the same way. Thurston, Steve and Lee are all expert, top-shelf musicians- some of the best in the business.

N offense Kim. You're an extraordinarily talented woman. I'm just talking about sheer musical accuracy right now. Your artistic talent knows no bounds.

what kind of pressure must the other two felt to have so many people invested in Kim and Thurston's marriage to support the band.

STEVE: they're yelling again....

floating, I think it's the other way around. it's not the marriage that supports the band. it's just it's clear that with both of them maybe not wanting to see each other, I hardly see them rehearsing. but then again, THE RAMONES taught us all something in that regard...
