1I'm not a perfectionist when it comes to songwriting. I'm more of a perfectionist when it comes to the instrumentation. I'll let nonsense words go by just 'cause they feel good.
2A rock 'n' roll band needs to be able to get under people's skin. You should be able to clear the room at the drop of a hat.
1Brother of radio DJ Mary Lucia
2Gave up drugs and alcohol following the disbanding of The Replacements in 1992, and was successfully treated for depression in 1998.
3Can't Hardly Wait was named after the Replacements song of the same name, and acts as the theme song during the ending credits.
4Actually, he released two albums this year, Stereo, and Mono (under the alias of Grandpa Boy). The album that got The 'Mats noticed would definitely have to be, "Sorry Ma, Forgot To Take Out The Trash", which was released by the Twin/Tone label. Across town "rivals" Husker Du, were jealous of them because they played less than a dozen shows before they were signed. Bassist Tommy Stinson wasn't even in High School by this point. None of The Replacements graduated high school in fact. Bob Stinson, who played guitar in The 'Mats for the first seven years, was found dead in his apartment in 1995, due to an apparent overdose. The 'Mats never really got the mainstream recognition that they deserved.
5His latest album, a double disc titled 'Stereo,' was released on April 23, 2002. It is his fourth solo effort since the break up of the Replacements in 1992.
6Son Johnny was born in 1998.
7Westerburg High School, the fictional high school used in the cult classic film, Heathers, was named in honor of Westerberg by the film's writer.
8His albums with the Replacements, 1984's 'Let it Be', 1985's 'Tim', and 1987's 'Pleased to Meet Me', are considered among the best released in the 1980s.
9Although he composed the soundtrack to "Singles," the music of the Replacements is featured in Cameron Crowe's other two films, "Say Anything" and "Jerry Maguire."
10Paul Westerberg is the lead singer and songwriter for the Replacements, a critical darling during the eighties.
