TOMMY STINSON (The Replacements)
Since then, Tommy has made lots of music; Bash & Pop Friday Night is Killing Me (1993) and Anything Could Happen (2017); his more democratic and pop-ish band Perfect Once, Twice, Three Times a Maybe (2004); plus two solo albums - Village Gorilla Head (2004) and One Man Mutiny (2011). In addition, he was an integral part of GnR’s Chinese Democracy (2006) and two albums with his longtime mates, Soul Asylum - The Silver Lining (2006) and Delayed Reaction (2011). The Replacements also reared their heads again with cathartic and unanimously well-received reunion shows in 2013, ‘14 and ‘15. New recordings were made but ultimately scuttled.
When you listen to a Tommy Stinson record, under any moniker, you’re hearing rock n’ roll done by a lifer, someone who has literally spent three-fourths of his time on this earth touring and making music. If you subscribe to the theory that it takes 10,000 hours to achieve mastery in any field, Tommy Stinson has done that, many times over.
