Last night, Minnesota singer-songwriter Grant Hart — best known as a member of Hüsker Dü — died at age 56. While the legendary band's three members have had ups and downs since the group dissolved in the late 1980s, they were recently in touch to support the upcoming release of a box set chronicling the trio's early years. Both surviving members, Bob Mould and Greg Norton, have shared tributes to their bandmate on Facebook. Other music luminaries in Minnesota and beyond have weighed in with words of appreciation and condolence.
