Replacements Book

Their legend is entrenched in rock history: Three neighborhood friends form a band in a Minneapolis basement, recruit a 12-year-old brother to play bass, and become one of the most critically acclaimed rock acts of the 1980s. Along the way there's comedy, tragedy -- and a lot of beery folklore. Longtime Twin Cities music critic Jim Walsh joins us to share his oral history, "The Replacements: All Over But The Shouting."
