Tommy Stinson, Slobberbone, Dave Hause Recommended Early Warnings (Music) Soundboard

When: Sat., May 21, 9 p.m. 2011

Tommy Stinson first came to the music world's attention in the 80s as the underage bassist for proto-indie upstarts the Replacements. Like most of his bandmates, he followed up the group's 1991 breakup with a couple collections of somewhat satisfying pseudo-Replacements rock, most notably as leader of the band Bash & Pop. Then in 1998 his career took a bizarre turn when he joined Guns N' Roses after Axl Rose fired what was left of their lineup; he's been with them ever since, making Stinson the longest-­running bassist in GnR history. He also found time to join Soul Asylum and briefly record a couple tunes with a reunited Replacements—though without his late brother, Bob. For this tour he's performing songs from his days in Bash & Pop and another post-Replacements group called Perfect, along with solo material that draws from 2004's Village Gorilla Head and a new record he plans to release this summer. —Miles Raymer
