For Better or for Worse \\ Band Members Who Marry

Summer Camp’s new release hasgot us thinking about other band matches made in harmony heaven and whether being married to your singing partner, as well as the music, can really work?


This cutesy, American, indie-pop duo embarked upon a yearlong sailing trip and, instead of breaking up after, they made an album about it called Cape Dory. If you listen to their music they sound blissfully happy so hopefully Alaina Moore and Patrick Riley can go the distance.

Arcade Fire

From the 7-piece band, 2 of its members, Win Butler and Regine Chassagne, had already married before they founded the band in 1995. Wonder if the other 5 get involved in the domestics!

The White Stripes

They tried to tell everyone they were brother and sister but it soon came to light that Jack and Meg White were in fact married. Sadly they are now divorced and The White Stripes are no more.

Yo La Tengo

For those of you not familiar with this duo, get listening now! They are a threesome that include married couple Ira Kaplan and Georgia Hubley. They’ve been together musically and romantically for over 20 years, so here’s hoping it stays that way.

Sonic Youth

This couple looked set for life with 16 albums and 27 years of marriage behind them. However, Kim Gordon and Thurston Moore broke up so the band did too.

Fleetwood Mac

This is a complicated love affair so bear with me. John and Christine McVie joined the band as a married couple, as did Lynn ‘Stevie’ Nicks and Lindsay Buckingham. Both marriages fell apart and Stevie subsequently went on to have a fling with Mick Fleetwood (she also married her best friend’s husband but that’s another story). However, only Christine McVie felt this was all weird enough to quit the band the others have continued to tour. Now she is set to re-join as Fleetwood Mac for their London shows next month. Awkward!
