Besterberg release

It's been almost 15 years since Paul Westerberg left the greatest band that never made it big--The Replacements. In those 15 years Paul Westerberg has flitted back and forth between messy punk and being a singer/songwriter. His solo work is chronicled on the album entitled "Besterberg".

I saw him play last month in Chicago. There were moments during the show where I cringed, but I realized it was just him being Paul, like back in the 80s when he'd get upset, and the Replacements would just sit around and play cards while the crowd booed. There are two types of Paul fans, those that love his songs and want to see him play and those who want to see a messy disaster that is often brilliant and sometimes rubbish. I think both groups of fans were satisfied with the show.
