Since I'm reading All Over But The Shouting (the book about the 'mats) I've been thinking about all the other great musicians from Minneapolis. So who do you think is the "king" of Minneapolis music, as in, who do you think has had the most influence on other Minneapolis acts as well as music in general, and who do you think will be remembered as being from Minneapolis the most? And who do you think Minneapolis is most proud of?

I love Dave, I respect Paul, but Bob is THE MAN!

I had to go with Paul Westerberg for this. He may not do a lot of work with the rest of the scene, but he really represents a lot of it. Bob Mould worked hard on building the scene back in the 80s, and should be respected for that, and he's done some good work with his bands. However, it's hard to say that he represents the scene now, as he's been away for so long. Dave, although a great musician, was never really a huge organizer, or rallying point of the scene, he was just there . . . Personally I'd consider Karl to be more involved with the local scene. Plus, Dave's been away for a while now, although Mpls is still a second home of sorts for him.

I won't really give Dylan credit in this one, as the only reason he's even considered is because he grew up in MN. He went to college for a year or two in mpls, briefly started his music career, and then moved to new york. He really doesn't belong as part of the mpls music scene, and although he's a great musician that many cities want to claim as their own, I don't really think mpls has a say on it.

Why give the honors to paul though is an interesting question. Mostly because he's become the elder statesman of sorts. Young rock bands in the area look up to him, and he's nationally known and respected. Maybe he's been put on a higher place then he deserves (as he never did that much for the rest of the music community, although Pablo Lousearama did produce an amazing album a while back), but his place is definitely there, and as he's still in the area, he can't be denied. Finally, I think Paul represents much of the attitude of mpls. He's kind of aloof, and on his own, he has many demons he's fought through the years, but he's gotten through it, and has the battle scars to show for it.
