See A Little Light by Bob Mould and Michael Azzerrad
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.
I am quite tempted to get hold of this. I loved Husker Du and Sugar and have a lot of time for the music of Bob Mould. He is one of those very underrated songwriters that has produced some great music down through the years.
In Record Collector's review they mentioned that Bob Mould also used to write scripts for Hulk Hogan and the WCW!!
