Bob Mould emerged at the epicenter of America's punk rock scene upon forming Husker Du in 1979. Their music roused a generation.
For the very first time, Mould opens up to tell the passionate story of life inside that furnace, creating music that mattered. He details the growth of his own music, from an early love of the Ramones to the making of Husker Du classics like 'Bed of Nails' and '59 Times the Pain.' Opening up about drug addictions, suicide, what it meant to come out as gay in a heavily hetero music world, and the band's violent implosion, Mould takes us on a whirlwind ride, culminating with his sobriety, his solo career, and creating the band Sugar.
A classic story of individualism and persistence, Mould's memoir is an open account of one man's driving force, which altered the shape of American music.
Bob Mould is an American musician, singer / songwriter, producer, and DJ. An original member of the influential 1980s punk band Husker Du, he released several albums after the band separated. Michael Azerrad is the author of Our Band Could be Your Life
