Bob Mould See a Little Light: The Trail of Rage and Melody

September 21, 2011

I have long been a Bob Mould fan so I was happy to see he recently published an autobiography.  I was doing a little convalescing from some recent surgery so I was able to read it in pretty much one long sitting – a rarity for me.

I am more of post Husker Du fan and that really works here because Bob has lived a rich life post Husker Du.

I have greater appreciation for why he wants to close the chapter on Husker Du and not dwell on that.  After reading hundreds of rock and roll bibliographies and autobiographies over the years I found it great to hear a gay man’s perspective on rock and roll.

One of the most best parts of Bob’s history is his time working for professional wrestling.  He makes what I thought is pretty stupid entertainment fascinating.

If you are a Mould fan you will find this book very honest and revealing.  You will enjoy his music even more after reading this.
