The definitive biography of The Replacements, told with the cooperation of the band and those closest to them.
“There’s no point writing the book if you’re not going to tell the whole story.”–Paul Westerberg to the author
Trouble Boys is the first definitive, no-holds-barred biography of one of the last great bands of the twentieth century: The Replacements. With full participation from reclusive singer and chief songwriter Paul Westerberg, bassist Tommy Stinson, guitarist Slim Dunlap, and the family of late band co-founder Bob Stinson, author Bob Mehr is able to tell the real story of this highly influential group, capturing their chaotic, tragic journey from the basements of Minneapolis to rock legends. Drawing on years of research and access to the band’s archives at Twin/Tone Records and Warner Bros., Mehr also discovers previously unrevealed details from those in the group’s inner circle, including family, managers, musical friends, and collaborators.
