Waiting on the Replacements

Oh, so that's what's really going on with the Replacements:

How often do you speak with Paul Westerberg and are you two working on anything together? There was some talk of another Replacements record before the reunion ended.

You know, we exchange texts now that he’s actually got a cell phone. We exchange goofy pictures and texts about once a month. We never lost touch. We never went years without talking to one another. We always talked and had that sort of thing. It’s like your brother that you have a lot of history with — good and bad.

He’s a little bit older than me. There are certain witticisms that I reach out to him for. We did our thing. As far as anything together, we’ll probably play something together again. We never said we wouldn’t.

As for anything in the works? Not a thing.

I don't know about you, but the way I read that is that when everything settles down, the Replacements will probably put something out or go on tour again. There's nothing definite there, but there's nothing final in those remarks either.

In the interim, anything that Tommy Stinson puts out is going to be good, so you should just get it without questioning it first.
