Muze PNote Destined to live in the shadow of his former band, the legendary Replacements, Minnesota singer/songwriter Paul Westerberg remained undaunted in embarking on his solo career in the early 1990s. While a number of initial Westerberg singles wouldn't have sounded out of place on the last few Replacements albums--most notably the pop-perfect "Dyslexic Heart" and the Stonesy "Knockin on Mine"--later efforts revealed a different approach. On the spare, emotive "It's a Wonderful Lie" and his aching rendition of the Beatles' "Nowhere Man," Westerberg dispenses with percussion entirely, while on "Let the Bad Times Roll" and "What a Day (For a Night)," he handles most instruments (including drums) himself, for a charmingly ramshackle effect. The cheekily named collection BESTERBERG features all of the aforementioned songs, along with a handful of non-album tracks. Fans will enjoy Westerberg's wry song commentary in the liner notes ("at this rate a hit song would embarrass me"), and newcomers will find an ideal starting point for exploring his underrated solo outings.

Artist Overview

As the frontman of Minneapolis's beloved Replacements, Paul Westerberg gave voice to thousands of frustrated and restless young people with his boozy anthems and bruised laments. While he'll forever be associated with the 'Mats, Westerberg's solo career, which began with a pair of songs on the SINGLES soundtrack, has been as long and prolific as the Replacements'. Musically, his solo material is still rooted in the power pop and classic rock radio that marked the 'Mats at their best; however, there is a maturity and sense of self-understanding present in his songs that can come only from years of traveling music's hard-luck roads.
