Well deserved Curt! I'm more and more disappointed that I missed their Philly show. I hadn't heard anything about it until learning here on another post.

The guitar looks and sounds great!

I'm really digging the new Bash & Pop CD! I wonder if it's a record for longest time between debut and sophomore releases? It was about 22 years or so.

Tommy Stinson was the bass player for The Replacements as a teenager.

They'll be back the new record is getting a lot of play.

It's got a lot of Stones and Faces elements and ain't no Yani...

Congrats, Kurt! So glad you are getting the validation/recognition/ acknowledgement you deserve!

Here's young Tommy on bass. That's big half-brother Bob Stinson on lead. Pretty sure I was at this show at the Entry (with a fake id that said I was 24 when I was maybe...MAYBE fifteen (Tommy is about the same age as me, maybe a year older, we were at school together for about a year and a half). Replacements shows often ended in an abortive fisticuffs between Paul and Bob. And never just an act. They pissed one another off royally. But Paul was such a great songwriter. And he LOVED Bob's guitar playing. In the liner notes to Sorry Ma Forgot to Take out the Trash, their first album, Paul writes to one tune that "Bob's lead is hotter than a urinary infection". Another little bit of trivia, Bob always said his favorite guitar player was Prince. All the Minneapolis punks, which includes me I guess, were pretty in awe of Prince.

No. Actually, trying to be gentle. But, yes, I do live in a slightly more formal world.

It's all good, just make sure you get EXTRA starch around the collar...

Bob was a natural, check out what GE Smith says about the time they were banned from NBC & SNL.
