Bob Mould

Bob Mould developed his deep love of music as a child when his father, who owned a small grocery store, would bring in boxes of singles on 7-inch vinyl. While attending Macalaster College in St. Paul, Minnesota, Mould formed the hardcore punk band Hüsker Dü in 1979. While never attaining large-scale commercial success, Hüsker Dü left an indelible imprint on rock music. Mould, who’d been a heavy drinker most of his life, decided to sober up at the same time that Hüsker Dü was falling apart. After the band’s breakup in 1988, he hid himself away in a cabin and writing softer songs on acoustic guitar. He released two solo albums, ‘Workbook’ and ‘Black Sheets of Rain.’ In 1992, he formed the power-pop trio Sugar, releasing two albums, ‘Copper Blue’ and ‘File Under: Easy Listening’ before disbanding. Mould has continued, albeit sporadically, to release solo albums. In 1999, he stopped playing music and began working in another field of great interest to him: wrestling. Mould wrote and coordinated matches for World Championship Wrestling for two years. In 2002, he returned to music, recording the questionable ‘Modulate,’ a dance/electronica album. Since then, he’s released numerous albums, the latest being 2014’s ‘Beauty & Ruin.’
