Rock critic and author Bob Mehr joins Justin to talk about his excellent new book, “Trouble Boys: The True Story of The Replacements.” Bob discusses the struggle The Replacements had achieving commercial success, how the band became legends without being stars, the group finding salvation in rock and roll, being one of the first independent bands to be signed by a major record label, Chicago’s role in The Replacements story, the legendary “break-up show” in Grant Park and how they were a band out of their time.
