Grant Hart non ce l’ha fatta. Il batterista (ma era anche cantante e polistrumentista) degli Hüsker Dü e artista storico del panorama rock americano indipendente degli anni ’80, dopo una lunga e dolorosa battaglia contro il cancro, è morto a soli 56 anni.

La notizia della scomparsa di Grant Hart è stata data prima sulla pagina Facebook degli Hüsker Dü, che hanno postato una sua foto senza alcun commento, poi da Variety.

Anche Bob Mould (degli Hüsker Dü), ha ricordato l’artista in un lungo post su Facebook.

It was the Fall of 1978. I was attending Macalester College in St. Paul, Minnesota. One block from my dormitory was a tiny store called Cheapo Records. There was a PA system set up near the front door blaring punk rock. I went inside and ended up hanging out with the only person in the shop. His name was Grant Hart.
The next nine years of my life was spent side-by-side with Grant. We made amazing music together. We (almost) always agreed on how to present our collective work to the world. When we fought about the details, it was because we both cared. The band was our life. It was an amazing decade.
We stopped working together in January 1988. We went on to solo careers, fronting our own bands, finding different ways to tell our individual stories. We stayed in contact over the next 29 years — sometimes peaceful, sometimes difficult, sometimes through go-betweens. For better or worse, that’s how it was, and occasionally that’s what it is when two people care deeply about everything they built together.
The tragic news of Grant’s passing was not unexpected to me. My deepest condolences and thoughts to Grant’s family, friends, and fans around the world.
Grant Hart was a gifted visual artist, a wonderful story teller, and a frighteningly talented musician. Everyone touched by his spirit will always remember.
Godspeed, Grant. I miss you. Be with the angels.”


Grant Hart
Hüsker Dü

Grantzberg Vernon Hart (nome all’anagrafe) era nato a St. Paul, in Minnesota, e a fine anni ’70, insieme a Bob Mould e Greg Norton, fondò in Minnesota il gruppo hardcore punk degli Hüsker Dü, band che in pochi anni cambiò la scena della musica punk sia in America e altrove.

Gli Hüsker Dü esordirono nel 1983 con l’album “Everything falls apart” e si sciolse successivamente nel 1988. Grant Hart comunque continuò, prima formando il trio Nova Mob, e poi come solista. Il suo miglior lavoro, che ha influenzato una generazione di artisti, è stato indubbiamente l’album The Argument. Il suo ultimo disco, The argument, è uscito nel 2013.
