Summary

Summary

A New York Times Bestseller

Based on a decade of research, hundreds of interviews, and written with the participation of the group’s key members—including reclusive singer-songwriter Paul Westerberg, bassist Tommy Stinson, and the family of late guitarist Bob Stinson—Trouble Boys was hailed as an instant classic rock biography, a deeply intimate and nuanced portrait exposing the primal factors and forces that shaped one of the most brilliant and notoriously self-destructive groups of all time.

A roaring rock ‘n’ roll adventure, a heartrending family drama, and a cautionary showbiz tale, Trouble Boys is a penetrating work and a major addition to the canon.
