See A Little Light
See A Little Light: The Trail of Rage and Melody by Bob Mould with Michael Azerrad
first published 2013, paperback
A revered punk rock god comes out about everything - drugs, alcohol, and sexuality in a story turned triumphant through music
Bob Mould stormed into America's punk rock scene in 1979, when clubs across the country were filling with kids dressed in black leather and torn denim. And at its center, a new band out of Minnesota called Hüsker Dü was bashing out songs and touring the country on no money, driven by the inspiration of guitarist and vocalist Bob Mould. In See a Little Light, Mould tells his dramatic story for the first time. Revealing the struggles with his own homosexuality, the complexities of his intimate relationships, and his 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 finally finding his place in the world. A classic story of individualism and persistence, Mould's autobiography describes the richhistory of one of punk's most revered figures, whose driving force altered the shape of American music.
