    Grant Hart of Husker Du fame dead.

    Only yesterday I randomly plucked Candy Apple Grey out of my CD pile to play in the car. Husker Du were hugely influential on both The Pixies and Nirvana. How sad to see him die at only 56.

    Every gimmick hungry yob,
    Digging gold from rock and roll
    Grabs the mic to tell us,
    He'll die before he's sold.

    Jeez that is spooky - I was listening to a song called Grant Hart by the Posies half an hour ago which was a sort of tribute to him. Never quite got into Husker Du but might make another effort.

    awesome band with great albums......let down by terrible recordings! influenced many bands and had a very unique style/sound, probably never got the fame they deserved but then again it could have been the punk band jumps to major label syndrome.
    their highest billboard hit just scraped into the top 100 for a week!

    Very sad (: will need give his post Husker Du works a listen.
