The idea that rock ‘n’ roll can be a life-saving force has become a bit of tired cliché. But that adage has always seemed to legitimately apply to Tommy Stinson. At the age of 11, young Tommy was enlisted by his older half-brother, the late Bob Stinson, to play bass guitar in The Replacements, derailing…
From Bob Mehr: “Looks like I’ll be jumping on Jonesy’s Jukebox this afternoon. We’ll probably discuss the Replacements, pie ‘n’ mash, and many other fings. Show is on from noon to 2 p.m. pacific. You can listen live at 955klos.com or download the podcast later.” LISTEN TO THE PODCAST Always a blast hanging with King…
If you think Tommy Stinson has been part of your musical life for much if not all of it, imagine how he must feel. Hell, he’s been doing this since he was a 10-year-old kid growing up in Minneapolis, banging away in the garage on his bass with his brother and friends, a group…

They just happen, and there’s only so much you can do to force it. And poor Stinson has been chasing it for a long time.
