From Lana Del Rey to ex-husband/bandmate Thurston Moore, the new memoir from Sonic Youth's Kim Gordon pulls no punches.
The title of Kim Gordon's strikingly confessional new memoir, Girl in a Band (Feb. 24, Dey St./HarperCollins), is a simplification. Yes, the book covers her role as co-founder, singer and bassist of New York post-punk pioneers Sonic Youth, one of indie rock's most revered acts. But it also focuses heavily on the rise and fall of her storybook downtown-bohemian marriage to her bandmate Thurston Moore. The pair, who married in 1984 and have a 21-year-old daughter, shocked fans in 2011 when they announced their split.
