hell freezes over

Bob Mould, Paul Westerberg, Soul Asylum and others played a benefit gig in Minneapolis last Thursday for Karl Mueller of Soul Asylum who has cancer (currently in remission). The biggest surprise of the night was that Grant Hart got on stage with his former Husker Du bandmate Bob Mould for a couple of their old band's numbers (fabulously, Never Talking To You Again and Hardly Getting Over It). Mould is silent on this in his own blog, but Hart puts the pic upon a page called Hell Freezes Over on his site.

Greg Norton, the third member of Husker Du has been out of music ever since the split. He's currently head chef at Nortons Restaurant in Bay City, Wisconsin.
