From Trouble Boys:

The Academy of the Holy Angels in Richfield, a first-tier suburb just south of South Minneapolis, had been all-girls school for most of its first century.

Founded in 1877 as an institution of learning for fledging nuns, it became a private day school in 1931. It began admitting boys in 1972. Paul Westerberg was a member of the second class that included males.

"I was a little hesitant to go 'cause it had been all-girls," he said. "But that also meant there was gonna be a lot of chicks there."

From Trouble Boys:

"Paul's first years were spent at 3734 Pleasant Ave, kitty-corner from the Church of the Incarnation, where Hal and Mary Lou had been married.

The house was within eyesight of the Catholic school Paul attended until he was a teenager."

"The family made sure his sleeves were rolled up so everyone could see his tattoos."

So begins Trouble Boys, the fascinatingly thorough chronicle of The Replacements by Bob Mehr.

Bob Stinson, original lead guitarist for The Replacements, had his funeral service at this location (then called McDivitt-Hauge Funeral Home) on February 22, 1995.

Bob had died at the age of 35 not of overdose or suicide, but of organ failure.
