Bob Mould did an Ask Me Anything Q & A session on Reddit yesterday. Some highlights from the session are posted below - probably the most awesome highlight was Bob revealing the lyric "never lose that feeling" from his song "Keep Believing" was a nod to Swervedriver! Awesome. Some other nuggets from the chat are posted below:

On playing with the Pixies:

I was so luck to get to play shows with the Pixies in 1989. They were so important to the growth and progress of American music. THe 1980's in Minneapolis were so cool. Not only HD Mats Soul Asylum, but Prince, Flyte Time, etc. Such a creative place.

On playing live and working with Foo Fighters:

I was a Nirvana fan. We played shows together in 1991. I was a Foo Fighters fan. Nothing Left To lose got me through a bunch of road trips in 1999. Dave and I formally met in DC and we hit it off. I was honored to be asked to help out with Dear Rosemary. It was great to see Butch Vig as well, we worked on a Tar Babies EP at Smart Studios in Madison in 1984 or so! And to meet Pat Smear — I adored the Germs. I didn't think they would ask me to tour with them, nor did I anticipate the amount of kindness Dave and the entire Foos family would share with me. Great band, class act all the way around. I am very grateful.

Mould also discussed the Kickstarter project (raising funds for the DVD release of last year's Bob Mould tribute concert) and posted a link to a finished cut of Dave Grohl and Mould playing "Ice Cold Ice" (posted below). Mould revealed the performance was one of Grohl's favorites from the evening.

Read the full Reddit with Bob Mould here (a handy table with just the responses to the questions he answered is here), visit the Kickstarter for the See A Little Light tribute concert here (the campaign ends on December 22nd), and watch additional video from the 2011 tribute concert here.

Bob Mould recently announced four dates in North America (including a Detroit stop at the Magic Stick on March 2nd). As Mould mentioned in his Reddit session, he will not be playing Copper Blue in full at these shows, but instead will be playing songs from his latest album Silver Age, along with classics from Husker Du, Sugar, and his solo catalog. Visit Mould's official site for more details on the shows.
