The long-awaited, full-force autobiography of American punk music hero, Bob Mould

Bob Mould stormed into America's punk rock scene in 1979, when clubs across the country were filling with kids dressed in black leather and torn denim, packing in to see bands like the Ramones, Black Flag, and the Dead Kennedys. Hardcore punk was a riot of jackhammer rhythms, blistering tempos, and bottomless aggression. And at its center, a new band out of Minnesota called Hüsker Dü was bashing out songs and touring the country on no money, driven by the inspiration of guitarist and vocalist Bob Mould. Their music roused a generation.

From the start, Mould wanted to make Hüsker Dü the greatest band in the world - faster and louder than the hardcore standard, but with melody and emotional depth. In SEE A LITTLE LIGHT, Mould finally tells the story of how the anger and passion of the early hardcore scene blended with his own formidable musicianship and irrepressible drive to produce some of the most important and influential music of the late 20th century.

For the first time, Mould tells his dramatic story, opening up to describe life inside that furnace and beyond. Revealing the struggles with his own homosexuality, the complexities of his intimate relationships, as well as his own drug and alcohol addiction, Mould takes us on a whirlwind ride through achieving sobriety, his acclaimed solo career, creating the hit band Sugar, a surprising detour into the world of pro wrestling, and most of all, finally finding his place in the world.

A classic story of individualism and persistence, Mould's autobiography is an open account of the rich history of one of the most revered figures of punk, whose driving force altered the shape of American music.

    " If you're a fan of Bob Mould, Husker Du or the 80s punk scene in general (The Replacements, Black Flag, Minutemen, etc.), this is a fascinating read. "

    " As the book went along I thought Bob started to sound more like a dick, however the stories of life in the underground punk scene and then general rock n roll continued to have nuggets of fun. "

    " I've always dug Sugar and Bob Mould, and now I dig him even more after reading about his life. Very open, interesting, and honest. "

    " Bob Mould gives us plenty of details about his interesting life as founding member of Husker Du, Sugar and then numerous musical transformations of himself, not to mention living as a homosexual in the hard-core music scene. The highlights of this book were Mould sharing grisly details of his (often) difficult relationships with band members (his own and others) and his personal ups and downs as a homosexual and evolution as a gay man. Sadly, despite all of the interesting stories, Mould comes off as SO egotistical. Too many pats on the back and the overall I-am-a-punkrock-God tone of this memoir make it hard take seriously. "
