Bob Mould is widely considered one of the major players of the Minnesota music scene in the 1970s and 80s. A member of punk band Hüsker Dü, he went on to play in Sugar, and has had a solo career all his own.
Mould has released a new autobiography, out today, titled “See a Little Light: The Trail of Rage and Melody.”
MPR’s Chris Roberts interviewed Mould about the book, but rather than pose a bunch of typical reporter questions, Roberts went to some of Mould’s old colleagues to find out what they were curious to know. The result is a very personal, dynamic interview.
At one point, Mould admits he never expected to live to the age of 30, given his pretty brutal lifestyle.
