Azerrad to help Husker Du's Bob Mould write autobiography

American punk hero Bob Mould, founder of pioneering punk band Husker Du, will collaborate with Nirvana biographer Michael Azerrad to write his memoir for publication in autumn 2010.

Bob Mould said, "For many years, people have asked if and when I would write my autobiography. I have always looked forward to this point in time, where I could tell my stories, to answer the many questions about the music and the lifestyle, and how they inform the creative process. I have not been alone on this ride: friends and foes, mentors and associates, peers, lovers, all traveling by my side. The ride so far has been incredible, and I hope to do my memory right in documenting the journey."

"The gorgeous rage of Bob Mould's music seemed like the best possible response to the Reagan '80s for many music-loving young Americans," says publisher Michael Pietsch. "To hear firsthand what it was like to make that music, and to build the indie rock world that eventually brought us REM, Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Green Day, and much of modern rock, is something that music lovers have awaited for years."

Michael Azerrad is the author of the bestselling Our Band Could Be Your Life and Come As You Are: The Story of Nirvana.
