Thom Yorke, singer for Radiohead has separated from his partner and mother of his children Rachel Owen after 23 years.
They were one of the most enduring couples in the rock and roll business, and also one of the most private.
Thom, now 46, met Rachel while the two were at university in Exeter in their native UK. She went on to become a printmaker, and he went on to front one of Britain's most successful rock bands.

"Rachel and I have separated," Thom said in a statement. "After 23 highly creative and happy years, for various reasons we have gone our separate ways. It's perfectly amicable and has been common knowledge for some time."
They have two children together, son Noah, 14, and daughter Agnes, 11.
