Summary

The long-awaited, full-force autobiography of American punk music hero, Bob Mould.
Bob Mould stormed into America's punk rock scene in 1979, when clubs across the country were filling with kids dressed in black leather and torn denim, packing in to see bands like the Ramones, Black Flag, and the Dead Kennedys. Hardcore punk was a riot of jackhammer rhythms, blistering tempos, and bottomless aggression. And at its center, a new band out of Minnesota called Hüsker Dü was bashing out songs and touring the country on no money, driven by the inspiration of guitarist and vocalist Bob Mould. Their music roused a generation.

Big fan of Bob's music, not sure about this though

it was great to learn more about Bob, the chronology of his music and the events that shaped him, and that his struggles and life are pretty ordinary. I found the narration dry, depressed and uninspiring though.

Honest & engaging

I loved this book. Bob's delivery was refreshingly candid and delivered in his own slightly deadpan (yet still entertaining) style.
I was a big Sugar fan but didn't find Husker Du till later in life. it covers all this and his solo career too but...more importantly, it strikes a great balance between describing his music career and his own personal journey (particularly around his sexuality) in equally satisfying amounts.
If you're someone who just wants a list of musical events, dates and releases, this isn't the book for you. If you want to really want to get to know Bob Mould and understand his personal story, life and times, then read this.

I read a lot of music biogs and this rates in my top 3. No question.
Highly recommended!

BOB MOULD: THE LAST GREAT UNICORN

As a straight 45 year old woman, I am still in love with Bob Mould's music and the man himself. (...and heartbroken that he likes men). I absolutely loved this book. What a great history of all the music I love and grew up listening to.
