==Birthplace==Who cares

Untitled[edit]

I thought Thurston Moore was born in Tennessee. Anyone have anything authorotative on this? Pstevenson 16:57, 15 April 2006 (UTC)

I think I took the original place of birth from his allmusic guide entry, which I have a reasonable amount of confidence in. If someone has a better source, feel free to point it out. Sarge Baldy 19:44, 15 April 2006 (UTC)
It says in his interview with the Nashville Scene [1] that he was born in McKenzie, Tennessee. -Wantsarevolution (talk) 01:18, 26 April 2008 (UTC)

guitars[edit]

Why mention Fender Mustangs and Cyclones here? Thurston Moore is not associated with those instruments, and possibly has never actually played Fender Cyclones, those being a late addition to the Fender stable, especially given his proven tendency towards Jazzmasters and Jaguars. Can this reference be supported with some sort of evidence?

== how tall is he ==Who cares

i heard he was 6'7 ish. 67.172.61.222 23:01, 2 September 2006 (UTC)

== when did he get married? ==Who cares

The page on his wife (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kim_Gordon) claims they got married in 1984, this page claims 1985

1984 --Pantophobia 20:07, 3 March 2007 (UTC)

David Adelmen[edit]

The article says that he released records under the moniker "David Adelmen". I couldn't find any evidence to that, so i removed it. If i'm wrong, please restore it and provide a source. Thanks. --Amir E. Aharoni (talk) 12:54, 17 January 2008 (UTC)

External link suggestion: Article about Thurston Moore & Ian MacKaye's appearance at the 2008 Brooklyn Book Festival[edit]

As an editor at Crawdaddy!, and to comply with COI guidelines, I am not posting the link to this article covering Thurston Moore and Ian MacKaye's Q&A/discussion at the 2008 Brooklyn Book Festival. However, I would like to recommend it on its merits, and hope that an editor will find the time to examine the article and—if he or she sees fit—post it as an external link. The piece gives a very thorough account of their appearance at the festival, detailing their discussion with the audience and one another about the music and book industries. I appreciate your time. Crawdaddy! [2]

Screwdriver as one of his instruments?[edit]

This is either a joke, or interesting enough to warrant elaboration in the article. --WayneMokane (talk) 00:27, 24 May 2009 (UTC)

He used a screwdriver to play his guitar - I don't that qualifies a screwdriver as a musical instrument somehow. Ranaldo's page doesn't list electric drill, so I would suggest removing screwdriver from the list.--Michig (talk) 06:50, 24 May 2009 (UTC)
Do we include "guitar pick" as an instrument as well? The screwdriver is used as a tool (well, obviously, it is a tool, but you know what I mean). freshacconci talktalk 16:56, 24 May 2009 (UTC)

Thurston[edit]

Why is his first name Thurston, who or what is he named after? Thanks, Maikel (talk) 08:25, 16 July 2009 (UTC)

Trivia Section[edit]

There shouldn't be trivia sections anymore like there is on this page. See Wikipedia:Trivia sections. Thanks. --JoeTalkWork 17:21, 6 November 2009 (UTC)
