Thurston Moore has commented on his split with bandmate Kim Gordon, which put their band Sonic Youth on indefinite hiatus, and his current relationship with Eva Prinz.
“I’m involved in a really sweet relationship and it really does make me happy, it truly does,” Moore told The Fly. “But I’ll always have that experience of sadness that a separation brings, especially one that was as important, not just to me, but everybody around us. There have been some fall-outs, but that’s to be expected. It’s pretty heavy.”
In an interview with Elle last year, Gordon said their marriage “ended in a kind of normal way – midlife crisis, starstruck woman.”
“I’ve had some life issues,” Moore said. “In your 40s and 50s, things can change in ways that upset the order of things that have been established over 25 years-plus of marriage. It’s really distressing. You have to work through it, it’s very personal and I don’t really talk about it so much.”
