Happy Birthday, Grant Hart!
Grant Hart, drummer and one of two songwriters from Minneapolis band Hüsker Dü, turns 55 today.
In today's Shadow we play a song -- "2541" -- he wrote while still in Hüsker Dü. But it was rejected by Bob Mould, the band's other songwriter. Mould later admitted that rejecting the song might have contributed to a growing rift between the two.
Hart would make this song his first single as a solo artist, following the dissolution of Hüsker Dü.
And the great Marshall Crenshaw cover.
