Based on a decade of research and reporting and hundreds of interviews (with family, friends, managers, producers, and musical colleagues) as well as full access to the Replacements' archives at Twin/Tone and Warner Bros. Records, author Bob Mehr has fashioned something far more compelling than a conventional band bio.
A roaring rock 'n' roll adventure, a heartrending family drama, and a cautionary showbiz tale, Trouble Boys is a penetrating work of biography and a major addition to the rock book canon.

I read this book when it first came out, but I so desperately wanted it in audible format that I sent the author an email begging him to hurry up about it.
Mehr completely fulfilled my wish by choosing the only woman on earth who could do this book justice to read it with all the grit, spit, pathos, bathos and love that it deserves.
Mary Lucia is Paul's sister. She's also our own favorite DJ in the Twin Cities. Her reading about herself being the subject of Achin' to Be made me cry!
Please stop reading this review and go download the Audible version. You'll be so glad you did.

Like the band, not for the faint hearted
A compelling and orderly story about a compelling but chaotic band. The book is heartbreaking but if you loved the Replacements you're probably used to that.
