About Bob Mould
Mould was born Robert Arthur Mould in Malone, New York. Much like Mould's current tour schedule, he lived in many different
places throughout his life. He attended the university Macalester College in Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota, where he formed
the well-known band Husker Du during the late 1970s. In addition to Bob Mould, he band consisted of Grant Hart, who played
drums and provided vocals, and Greg Norton, playing bass guitar. The band received acknowledgement in the punk rock scene
and the group recorded albums independently on SST Records. A number of years after playing and producing records on an independent
label, they signed with the major label Warner Brothers Records. Unfortunately, the first attempt at a major label found little
commercial success. There is one significant factor about Bob Mould and his role in Husker Du is that the band had a significant
impact on bands like Nirvana and the Pixies. In the late 1980s, Husker Du elected to separate due to a number of issues surrounding
personal issues, songwriting credits, musical direction and the devastating passing of the band's manager, David Savoy. Similar
to other popular bands with creative tension, the Bob Mould and Grant Hart are still guilty of keeping tension present in
the press after all of these years. In 2004, the two overcame their differences long enough to play a benefit show for Karl
Mueller of Soul Asylum. Following the break of Husker Du in 1988 Bob Mould attempted his first solo career that had songs
chart during the 1990s. It wasn't long before Mould formed the band Sugar with David Barbe on bass and Malcolm Travis on drums.
Sugar released the album Copper Blue, which was named Album of the Year in 1992 by NME; however, it wasn't long before Bob
Mould was pursuing his solo career again.
Bob Mould Breakthrough
Bob Mould's second attempt at a solo career has
found him significant success and a number of albums released. In the late 1990s, Bob Mould's personal life was discussed
in Spin magazine when an article announced his sexual orientation before he had openly accepted it. Later, Bob Mould self-identified
himself as a bear in the movie Bear Nation and has co-organized the WEDRock benefit concert that promotes the freedom to marry
in support of same-sex marriage. Over the years, the music Bob Mould creates has shifted from its punk rock past to embrace
aspects of electronic music and even started working as a DJ.
Bob Mould Live Show Experience
The live show experience
for anyone who has been a fan of Bob Mould since Husker Du will be an incredible experience. He has come a long way in his
professional career and in his personal life, as depicted in his autobiography. He is a well-respected musician by his everyday
fans, as well as the musicians who he has influenced. In 2011, a number of bands collaborated to play a number of songs from
Bob Mould's career at Walt Disney Concert Hall. Some of those musicians included Britt Daniel from Spoon, Tad Kubler from
The Hold Steady, Jon Wurster of Superchunk, Dave Grohl of Nirvana and Foo Fighters and Ryan Adams. It is no doubt with so
many fans that are fellow musicians that you do not want to miss seeing Bob Mould play his music live and in concert.
Bob Mould recently appeared on NPR Music's Tiny Desk Concerts, where he showed up with one thing: 1987

using to kick off his set list that included the following songs: "The War," "I Don't Know You Anymore," "Hey Mr. Grey" and
"Makes No Sense At All." Bob Mould is celebrating the release of this eleventh solo album, Beauty and Ruin. Known for his
days with the band Husker Du, Mould completed the set with "Makes No Sense At All." In 2011, Bob Mould published an autobiography
