Bob Mould! He'll tell us what to do

About four thousand years ago, Karl T alerted us to the existence of the rather wonderful Ask Bob Mould, a service of the Washington City Paper which allows you to bring your questions to Bob Mould for an answer.

And don't bother with the obvious first question, as the answer would be "yes, I am that Bob Mould, out of Husker Du and Sugar."

This week, he's offering advice on combining being a drummer with being a parent:

Try to keep illicit behavior and foul language to a minimum. If you have to smoke, step outdoors. Drinking in moderation is OK. When making important band decisions, always consider the baby’s opinion. Think Brian Eno and Peter Schmidt’s Oblique Strategies.

Good advice, we're sure you'd agree.
