Overview

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

"A beautiful, painful, frank memoir." —The Wall Street Journal

From the start, Bob Mould wanted to make Hüsker Dü the greatest band in the world—fast and loud, but with melody and emotional depth. In See a Little Light, Mould finally tells the story of how the anger and passion of the early hardcore scene blended with his own formidable musicianship and irrepressible drive to produce some of the most important and influential music of the late twentieth century.

For the first time, Mould tells his dramatic story, opening up to describe life inside that furnace and beyond. Revealing the struggles with his own homosexuality, the complexities of his intimate relationships, and his own drug and alcohol addiction, Mould takes us on a whirlwind ride through achieving sobriety, his acclaimed solo career, creating the hit band Sugar, a surprising detour into the world of pro wrestling, and most of all, finally finding his place in the world.

A classic story of individualism and persistence, Mould's autobiography is an open account of the rich history of one of the most revered figures of punk, whose driving force altered the shape of American music.

A story of amazing rock redemption As a fan, I was excited to see behind the scenes of Bob Mould's life. I had no idea how harrowing his childhood was and it certainly shows in his pain and passionate musicality. I would say it is really the trail of rage and redemption. Rock on, Bob.

Chapter One What the Waves Take ——————————–—————–————— Stormpaw looked over his shoulder at Mistypaw."Why are you just standing there while the fish gets away? Come on, Mistypaa." Stormpaw's hard gaze pierced Mistypaw, and Mistypaw stood still, feeling hurt. "Oh, Mistypaw." Stormpaw eyed her, then mumbled under his breath,"If you want anything done right, you have to do it yourself." He lunged at the fat fish in the water. They had become apprentices a moin ago. The sun glinted onthe water as Stprmpaw grabbed the fish in his strong claws. He lokked back over to Mistypaw woth a grunt"See? Your turn." Mistypaw sighed. They were the same age, but he treated her like she was a tiny kit and he, the leader of StreamClan. Mistypaw sighed again, and knelt by the water, waiting for a fish to approach. She grabbed the first one pn her jaws. Then she brpught ot back to camp, placong it on the fresh-kill pile.

Read this book from the library but decided I need to own it due to the excellent RnR history. Well written (he used a collaberator), and a good inside peek at how music is created today.
