Trouble Boys: The True Story of the Replacements

The introduction to Bob Mehr's Trouble Boys: The True Story of The Replacements is set in a funeral parlor in Minneapolis in February of 1995. As readers, we don't get back to the events surrounding this for another 400 pages, but the eventual demise of guitarist Bob Stinson hangs over much of the book like the Ghost of Christmas Future. But so does the eventual burnout of the band itself - one many considered the best American rock and roll band of the past 35-plus years. However, the flames burn bright in the meantime.
