Bob Mould talks new album 'Silver Age,' Foo Fighters and gay politics
Bob Mould spilled his guts in “See a Little Light: The Trail of Rage and Melody,” his autobiography released last year. He tackled some of the deep-seeded source of his “rage,” and the juicy stories behind fronting Husker Du, Sugar and starting his solo sets, all within the trappings of coming out of the closet in the early 1990s.
In some ways this new solo album seems to be about kind of living in the now. I'm wondering if that has much to do with this period after you've released an autobiography and you've been through a couple live records and different band formations in the last five years?
