Grant Hart 

Grant Hart's solo career will probably never eclipse the legend of his former band Hüsker Dü, but that hasn't stopped the drummer turned frontman from pursuing a long and fruitful solo path with enthusiastic support from friends and fans. The Dü cranked its amps and purveyed a scorched-earth approach to melodic punk music, whereas Hart's solo catalog has been decidedly more eclectic. Traces of Elvis Costello and David Bowie crop up in Hart's pensive balladry and freewheeling folk rock. He's about to release his first album since 1999: a studio collaboration with members of Godspeed You Black Emperor.
