Okay, I feel not so guilty at all for skipping so many weeks of Monkey’s favorite Paul Westerberg.net feature. Because you know what? There are slim pickins out there my fellow Westernerds. So get out there and get writing.
KEXP in Seattle interviews Laurie Lindeen.
Too Sweet for Rock and Roll has a write up of Achin’ to Be.
The Rock and Roll Geek Show had a great Westerberg quote as quote of the day way back on January 3.
Rock Critics.com brings up the age old question do politics belong in music? Discuss.
Julie at Hughesworld has some interesting observations about Laurie Lindeen, Jim Walsh and their books.
I believe ROCK & Roll Geek Show got that quote wrong.
It’s: “Tommy keeps pulling out the ‘Paul Westerberg’s more difficult to deal with than Axl Rose’ line. And I think, ‘Yeah, of course.’ Wouldn’t PZP be more difficult than Monkey?” – Paul Westerberg
You’re right! That’s the way I always remembered the quote.
The Hughes World commentary is pretty spot on. She likes the LL book though acknowledges she can act the bitch, and also feels the Walsh book is way too “insidery”. Was well put.
