this one's getting a lot of attention:

he narrates the audio version, hell yeah this is going in my queue
https://www.amazon.com/Audible-Harold/dp/B0BS81LZB1
burned through this quickly and was quite a ride
felt like I was in the young mind of Steven Wright, add to that the audible he narrates...it really felt like it

Finally finished the book about the Replacements by Mehr (Trouble boys).

Lordy that was depressing. I knew they were raging alcoholics who had shot themselves in the foot whenever they had a chance to make it big but not the extent.

I got to say it felt like an official biography. I felt like I was reading what Westerberg wantedÖ

I know people love this book but I didnít. Also it didnít quite explain why Bob was kicked out. I mean if it was the drugs and booze itís nothing Tommy and Paul didnít get into after Bob was kicked out. And if it was creative differences well I think the Replacements missed him once he left. Both Donít tell a soul and All Shook Down are pretty weak.

Sadly itís one of those books that after you read it you realize Paul and Tommy were assholes and Bob and Chris were the nice guys.

I liked the last 2 albums. But I don't have a hard time believing Bob and Tommy were assholes.  And then add drugs/alcohol to the mix.
