    Isn't it? I'm so glad he made it through.

    I've just seen that he's still playing gigs, including at this rather remarkable venue in Halifax (!):

    not just Orange Juice, but Hüsker Dü, The Replacements - hard to say these bands weren't about emotional connection. if anything actually the MPLS bands were significantly more raw on that front than R.E.M., w/o Stipe's kinda affected mumbling distance. also emotional connection sounds like it's headed to a kinda rockist thing about sincerity? not that that's bad or wrong, just noting. like, Gus Van Sant chose the Private Idaho metaphor from B-52's to make by any account a deeply emotional film about loneliness, yearning, etc.
    husker du and replacements CERTAINLY about emotion. 100% correct. sorry just figured out the MPLS stands for Minneapolis...
