See A Little Light: The Trail of Rage and Melody by Bob Mould

Wanna make a Gen-Xer feel really old? Tell them that Nirvana's Nevermind album came out 20 years ago. Also mention that rocker Bob Mould, of Hüsker Dü and Sugar fame, is now 50 years old. The alt-rock elder statesman has finally taken the time to write his autobiography, called See A Little Light: The Trail of Rage and Melody. In his book, the famously private Mould gives fans a personal look into the life of the man behind the songs. He talks about everything here, from his difficult childhood, the rise and fall of the seminal Hüskers and the fertile Twin Cities music scene of the Eighties, his solo career, and coming to terms with his homosexuality. The book contains its fair share of juicy insider stories and score-settling with former band mates and lovers, but avoids overindulgence by maintaining a strong focus on his journey as an artist and an individual. Mould's book is a compelling and enjoyable read for casual and hard-core fans alike.
