Paul Westerberg: The Artist As An Old Man

I know it's hard to believe since none of us has aged a day (right?)...but it has actually been 10 years since GrandpaBoy first emerged from his holler. In honor of this momentous anniversay, I searched high and low (ok, I searched my hard drive) and I found a bunch of GB art from the original Monolyth web site. That site has long since gone to the Internet graveyard so I'm re-posting the images here. Enjoy!

Paul Westerberg vs. Ryan Adams

No, not another PW/RA slap fight in the press. Crawdaddy has a great article by Greg Gaston posted today entitled "Shaggy Dogs: Paul Westerberg vs. Ryan Adams". It shows an all-too-rare appreciation of Paul's last few albums:

Westerberg’s voice, still scuffed, still broken, still can take your breath away with a life’s worth of stunning self-knowledge: "Every time I didn't follow my dreams, I lost the map / I live my fantasy instead / Till I found it was a trap / Gave a life, got a living / Hey, that’s all right / All is forgiven” (“All That I Had”).
