Writer Alex V. Cook talks about how when given the option he’d much rather listen to The Stones and The Replacements.

WXPN the Public Radio station out of the University of Pennslyvania is counting down the 885 most memorable musical moments and has The Replacements signing to a major label at 446.

Minneapolis Fucking Rocks offers a breakdown of Sound Opinion’s dissection of “Let it Be” (editor’s note: I can’t remember which one it was, but one of them claimed it was bacon and cigarettes, clearly his ears are broken).

Speaking of which, if you haven’t checked out the Sound Opinion’s featuring Jim Walsh dissecting “Let it Be” with Greg Kot and Jim Derogatis, you can check it out here.

James over at Pop Headwound offers up some opinions on the post-‘Mats career of Tommy Stinson and Paul Westerberg and talks about how he liked Bash and Pop’s “Friday Night is Killing Me” more than “14 Songs.” Interesting. He also offers up a few downloads for those who haven’t gotten Tommy’s solo stuff.

Also, make sure you vote in the latest Poll. I am most impressed with myself that I fixed it.

Musicotica offers up some Paul Westerberg tracks from a 1996 radio appearance (I am not sure where or what radio station).

Also, I almost forgot, the David Bowie blog is now the BFF of this, the Paul Westerberg blog.

    Hey Alex, I attend the same School of Rock; Stones & Replacements for me as well all the way, bar nuthin.

    I believe the APC Studio thing was in Atlanta, GA. I may have a copy of that show around somewhere, I think, unless I’m confusing it with another show.

  • Denise says:

    I’ll admit it… I like Friday Night Is Killing Me more than 14 Songs too. Don’t hate.

    Thanks for the shout!
