Kim Gordon Does Book Tour

Rolling Stone Magazine has an article on their website about an appearance former Sonic Youth bass player Kim Gordon made recently in Brooklyn to promote her new memoir Girl in a Band. In her talk in Brooklyn, the iconic musician talked about, among other things, musicians Neil Young and Kurt Cobain.

Gordon said that when Sonic Youth toured with Neil Young in 1991, Neil Young’s audience hated her band. She said that she’d often hear boos and cursing directed towards her and Sonic Youth from hippy type individuals. She mentioned how conservative and close-minded older counterculture types could be at that time, which is interesting and probably true, or at least Jason Halpern thinks so.

Gordon also said that Neil Young loved to go out and see strippers after the show, which she was surprised by since his songs are on the sensitive side. She said there was nothing wrong with Young’s behavior in this regard, just that it was surprising.

Personally, I thought that Gordon’s comments, especially about Neil Young and Kurt Cobain, were interesting. I don’t think Sonic Youth was as important to music as many critics believe, but Kim Gordon has been around a lot of major figures in 1980’s and 1990’s alternative circles so her viewpoints on them are worth hearing.

There’s a picture of Gordon at the talk to go along with the article and she looks relaxed and attractive.
