Total bummer. Even more of a bummer than the whole Thurston/Kim split thing. There are these couples in music that you think really have a real thing goin' on... then this.

Hope it doesn't hose up Bridge School this year.

Hey maybe they were deeply unhappy and they'll both be better off for it?

Yeah, maybe that's not the case from a band standpoint - as Thurston/Kim's split blew up Sonic Youth. At least Pegi and Neil's isn't going to break up Neil Young.

True. Love this quote:

"Divorce is always good news. I know that sounds weird, but it's true because no good marriage has ever ended in divorce. That would be sad. If two people were married and ... they just had a great thing and then they got divorced, that would be really sad. But that has happened zero times." - Louis C.K.

And what's bad news about a divorce is that there is a bad marriage. It's the fact that the marriage failed that is sad to everyone.

If someone already knew a marriage was no good then divorce would be good news but otherwise it is not. Louis C.K is funny tho

it's sad but i don't think it's a given that bitchiness was involved. 36 years is a great run that's gotta be longer than like 95% of marriages and that anyone our age can't even begin to comprehend, especially long after kids are outta the picture. much less if you have both been massively rich and ambitious and free to do anything. they could very well still love each other

still sad though, she played piano and sang backup when i saw him and they closed by singing natural anthem together :(

I was just kidding :(. they'll probably be happier as most divorcees seek. maybe they're still friends. The Kim Gordon / thurston thing sucks because he cheated on her. Which diminishes character to me and lays my loyalty on the side of Kim. I mean... Assholes cheat and lie. The Neil young thing could be complicated but the fact that it is news is kinda lame too. Imagine having to deal with newspaper headlines with every relationship you make or sever.

i would really say that he's possibly self-loathing/self-destructive but i dunno about SELFISH since he has sole custody of his daughters

I don't see how he's selfish or destructive. Care to elaborate?

so he's not sharing his daughters with anyone. that sounds pretty selfish to me.

I guess this just shows that even well into middle age you can still be the come-up for an older woman's scumbag husband
