Published Sep 15, 2008According to a release from Little, Brown and Company, former Hüsker Dü and Sugar front-man and current solo rocker Bob Mould will be publishing an autobiography. Michael Azarad, who wrote the classic indie rock memoir Our Band Could Be Your Life, is set to aide Bob in getting his story out there.
The press release reads:
The memoir will, for the first time ever, delve deeply into Mould's life as a musician and his experiences with Hüsker Dü, as a solo artist, and in his most commercially viable and successful work as leader of '90s indie rock kingpins Sugar. He will also tell the story of his other lives, including his internal struggle with his sexuality, the coming-out process, and his subsequent embrace of, and service to, the LGBT community; his work as a creative consultant / director in the world of pro wrestling; his work as a record producer, including seminal projects by Soul Asylum and Magnapop; and his foray into electronic / dance music, including the popular BLOWOFF club events held nationwide.
Mould adds his own sentiments, saying, "For many years, people have asked if and when I would write my autobiography. I have always looked forward to this point in time, where I could tell my stories, to answer the many questions about the music and the lifestyle, and how they inform the creative process. I have not been alone on this ride: friends and foes, mentors and associates, peers, lovers, all traveling by my side. The ride so far has been incredible, and I hope to do my memory right in documenting the journey.
Mould recently released his eighth studio album, The District line, earlier this year.
