It’s nice to know that in this crazy world, there are some things you can count on; this drunken 1987 radio interview with The Replacements does not disappoint.
Infamous for shooting themselves in the foot professionally with hard partying, frontman Paul Westerberg got sober in 1990, prior to the band’s fizzling breakup. He still produces awesome solo stuff, though he gives off the impression that he’s somehow in hiding because he keeps a pretty low profile these days.
A documentary on the band, Color Me Obsessed: A Film about the Replacements is due out in November; fans await with bated breath!
