About

First thing you should know. I am not Paul Westerberg. I don’t know Paul Westerberg. I’m just a doofy fangirl. My name is Jodi. I’m a freakishly-tall writer who lives in Minnesota. Really. I am not Paul Westerberg. Let me repeat that one more time: I am not Paul Westerberg.

Got that?

Good.

So, do you want to know about Paul Westerberg? I’d like to point you to his entry on Wikipedia.

Do you want to know more about this site? Read on.

Well, I started it for two reasons.

First: all the other Paul Westerberg sites seemed to be woefully out of date*, hard to navigate, and poorly designed. I thought Paul deserved a better-looking site that looked like it wasn’t created at the dawn of time with FrontPage.

Second: I detest censorship with a passion. I was a member of a Paul Westerberg message board for years and met some of my best friends (for real, like in real-life) through that site. But the tyranny of the message-board’s owner drove me away. Instead of bitching about the injustice, I took my toys and built my own sandbox. It’s the beauty of the web, it’s expansive and there is room for all of us.

So yes, what the world needs now is another Paul Westerberg site like I need a hole in my head. But here it is. You’ll find the general news type stuff, tour dates, concert reviews, big, goobery excitement about upcoming records and shows.

Enjoy! If you have any questions, feel free to contact me (Jodi, who is not Paul Westerberg).

Love you in the fall,
Jodi, Queen of the Underground

P.S. The site is always work in progress. Do you have any ideas? Let us know. In the meantime we’ll be working the kinks out as we go. You know how it is.

*Re: woefully out of date. . . pot, kettle, black. . . it’s hard to stay up-to-date when the man in the spotlight of the site doesn’t release new music all the time. We do our best with what we got.

    Ya, Guitar World did one in 88 I think, you should be able to find it fairly easily on the Interweb®…its pretty good.

    ColorMeImpressed.com has a scan of that tab. It’s in regular tuning instead of the open A PW plays live. It sounds good enough to my ears, but has a few tricky bits.

    When I tried it with my band, I played it in open G, two steps down from the record. It felt easier to play and much easier to sing.

    A friend burned a disc for me with other music, and the only Westerberg tune was “Attitude.” His player was messed up so the recording of that one song was bad-it had a rhythmic skipping to it.
    On the basis of that one badly recorded song, I drove 100 miles to see him perform. That was 2006. I didna recognize hardly a song, and it was the best show I had been to in a long time. Color me impressed–I have been a fan ever since. I never thought I was going to hear something new (or old but new too me) that I would love that much.

    I saw them in Boston at the Orpheum. After a guitar solo no one applauded. Paul said “let’s hear it you lame ass MF’s”. He was right. Boston crowds are not all there.

    I saw the Replacements just prior to the release of All Shook Dow, a classic album that showcases primarily Paul Westerberg. It is a tremendous album and is my top ten of all-time rock and roll albums.

    I would love to see Paul Westerberg play again…I admire both his Replacement work and hi solo albums. He is a hero of mine musically.
