I just found out...

Bob Mould of Hüsker Dü, Sugar and his own relatively successful solo fame has his own blog.

Who would have thunk?

I saw Bob play at the Hollywood Palladium back around 1994 in what had to be the loudest show I'd ever heard. His guitar sound is substantial as it is but in a live venue he takes no prisoners.

He walked onto the stage, threw down his cigarette, picked up his guitar and started right in on his songs. The one time he stopped playing was to tell the security to take it easy on some members of the mosh pit who had begun to climb onto the stage.

When he was done playing he simply walked off the stage without a wave or a farewell. It was one of the best no-bullshit sessiond I've ever witnessed.

First a guitar demigod now a blogger.

A lateral move?
