Today’s Dame of the Day is Kim Gordon (April 28, 1953-). Gordon studied art on the West coast and even assisted Larry Gagosian before she moved to New York City. Captivated by the no-wave scene, she decided to try her hand at music. While she dabbled in a few bands, her career exploded when she met Lee Ranaldo and Thurston Moore. Together, they formed Sonic Youth and spent the next 30 years creating their own distinctive brand of rock and roll.
