About Bob Mould
Bob Mould was once a member of one of the most influential bands of the 1980s in Hüsker Dü, and later one-third of the '90s band Sugar. But when he struck out on his own, Mould didn't do too badly in that department either.
It didn't appear, at least early on, that solo endeavors were ever part of Mould's plan. The guitarist, vocalist and songwriter became principally known for his work with Hüsker Dü, and the band found legs thanks to a series of recordings on the indy label SST Records. They inked with Warner Brothers in 1986, where they found modest commercial success, and were later cited as having paved the way for bands such as the Pixies and Nirvana.
When Hüsker Dü fractured due to alleged members' drug use, disputes over songwriting and the band's musical direction (not to mention the suicide of manager David Savoy), Mould turned to the solitude of a remote farmhouse and began work on a solo album. Yet that period didn't last before Mould formed a new trio, Sugar, with bassist David Barbe and drummer Malcolm Travis. The U.K. was particularly keen on the band, pushing their first album "Copper Blue," to gold status and spawning the hits "Helpless" and "If I Can't Change Your Mind."
Mould, who was forced out of the closet by various gay publications, has dabbled in solo work and returned to Sugar off an on through the years. His autobiography, "See a Little Light: The Trail of Rage and Melody," was published in 2011. His 11th solo album, "Beauty & Ruin," will release on June 3,, 2014 via Merge Records.
