Joshua Ostroff: The Beatles 'Didn't Build That'
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Barack Obama made waves recently when he said "if you've got a business, you didn't build that," a phrase taken wildly out of context, of course, by the Republicans. But what he meant was that for every genius idea or initiative an entrepreneur has, many unhearalded moments before that have to happen to make it possible, from someone building roads that a newly-invented car would drive on to becoming a teacher that gave their students the tools they would eventually use in said business. In many ways, Obama's idea also represents the heart of Backbeat, a musical currently enjoying its premiere North American run in Toronto and purporting to tell the "birth of the Beatles," but which really tells the story of the forgotten folks who helped make the Beatles possible. This was something that fledgling British film director Ian Softley realized back in the mid-'90s when he wrote and directed the Backbeat movie. Which is why his cinematic origin story of the world's most f ...

  • 1990
    Age 25
    Pirner at the time was the band's songwriter and he produced the album, Coup De Grace, by the Minneapolis metal band the Coup de Grace in 1990.
    More Details Hide Details The band achieved commercial success and visibility on MTV and VH1 with the 1992 single "Runaway Train", followed by another hit song, "Black Gold"; both from their album Grave Dancers Union. As Soul Asylum grew in popularity, Pirner was seen guesting on albums of differing genres, including artists like Paul Westerberg, Jason Karaban, Mike Watt, The Autumn Defense and Victoria Williams. His disheveled appearance and blonde matted dreadlocks made an unmistakable impression on fans and critics alike, making Pirner easily recognized and associating the band with the grunge scene. By 1999, Soul Asylum went into hiatus after making 1998's Candy from a Stranger, which sold the fewest number of copies of the three albums released at that point (after Grave Dancers Union and Let Your Dim Light Shine (1995), which yielded the big hits "Misery" and "Just Like Anyone"). After four years, Soul Asylum reunited and started writing songs in the studio. Bassist Karl Mueller died on June 17, 2005, at the age of 42 from esophageal cancer. About a year after his death, Soul Asylum released The Silver Lining on Legacy Recordings, which was dedicated to Mueller. About half the songs on the album were recorded with the late bassist, such as "Lately", "Slowly Rising" and "Standing Water". The first hit from this album was "Stand Up And Be Strong". Soul Asylum toured with their new line-up, which consisted of Pirner on guitar and vocals, Dan Murphy on lead guitar, Michael Bland on drums and Tommy Stinson on bass (as well as John Fields standing in on bass and piano for Mueller).
