Although I'd arrived at my destination, I sat in my car this morning so I could finish listening to David Greene's interview with musician Bob Mould. The band he co-founded in 1979, Hüsker Dü, provided the soundtrack to my teenage years and early 20s. More than half a lifetime later, I'm downloading songs from his new album. Enjoy the interview, and check out his new record, Beauty and Ruin - a heartfelt interpretation of his journey as a human being and the "elder statesman of alt-rock."
