Live Ledge #302: Grant Hart

I think everybody was shocked by the news that former Husker Du drummer Grant Hart passed away this week. As much as I love his former bandmate Bob Mould, it's Grant's songs that were my main highlights. Songs like "Diane", "Green Eyes", "Sorry Somehow", and so many more.

Obviously, his death set the stage for a show dedicated to him. Along with some Husker Du classics, there are quite a few songs from his solo and Nova Mob years. Topping things off are fantastic covers of Husker Du classics, many culled from a late-90's compilation of Twin Cities bands covering the entire "Zen Arcade" album.
