Trouble Boys by Bob Mehr

Staff Pick

This is a rare treat: a rock band biography that reads like a novel. The Replacements were one of the great "coulda-beens" of the 1980s, their obvious talent obscured only by their genius for screwing things up. The group's booze-soaked tale is one of abusive Midwestern backgrounds, fiery personalities, very long rides in the van, sudden fame, and equally sudden implosion. Mehr gives one of alt rock's greatest stories the epic telling it deserves, one that will have you cheering and weeping in equal measure!
