Paul Westerberg and The Replacements make a number of appearances in this blog. As significant American songwriters/bands go, I put Westerberg/Replacements up there with Dylan/The Band (I know…The Band = Canadian), REM, Gram Parsons/Burritos/Byrds, NMH, etc.
This great interview (which originally appeared on Vanyaland) really captures two American originals: Westerberg and Wolf.
I dunno. I’m just glad they – and this video – exist(s).
I suppose it’s (sorta) occasioned by the fact that Westerberg has a great new record out with Juliana Hatfield under the nom de rock: The I Don’t Cares.
