So now that we got that Craft thing out of the way what’s next for the wayward Westerberg fan to look forward to? Why Jim Walsh’s book The Replacements: All Over But the Shouting: An Oral History, due out November 15th.
And as exciting as that is, there’s even more!
Thanks to my pal the Largehearted Boy, I learned that Mr. Jim Walsh is gonna be on Sound Opinions this week with Chicago rock critics Greg Kot and Jim Derogatis discussing The Replacements’ best ever (oh yes, I said it) album “Let it Be.”
Minnesotans, we get to hear Sound Opinions on 89.3 The Current at 9 a.m. Saturday morning (October 6th). Those of you who are not in Minnesota can check the station listing to see when it’s playing on your local public radio station, or wait a few days and just stream it from the Sound Opinions site.
This should prove to be interesting. I don’t know if it was Kot or DeRogatis, but one of them totally panned the Paul Westerberg and His Only Friends Band at The Rivera in Chicago back in 2005.
