Prince club, Dylan, Replacements dwellings make map of music landmarks

Bob Dylan's childhood home in Hibbing, and First Avenue and the Stinson roof in Minneapolis have been mapped out as three of the greatest "Music Landmark Attractions in the U.S.," Rolling Stone reports.

Dylan, who was born in Duluth in 1941, moved with his family to Hibbing with six years later.

"Dylan graduated from the local high school in 1959 and soon thereafter began a journey that would change music as we know," Rolling Stone noted.

The famed musician, of course, returned to his roots over the summer when he played one of his two Minnesota "AmericanaramA" tour stops in Duluth.

First Avenue is recognized by Rolling Stone for its connection to Minneapolis music icon Prince and the club's connection to his classic 1984 film "Purple Rain."

"A must-stop spot for national touring acts, the Avenue’s main room hosted Prince’s earliest shows in addition to showcasing the work of Husker Du, The Replacements and Soul Asylum," according to Rolling Stone.

The music magazine also gives an individual shout-out to The Replacements, as the Stinson roof was named another must-see music landmark in the U.S.

"In the late 1970s, pioneering indie rockers The Replacements came together at 2215 Bryant Avenue in downtown Minneapolis," Rolling Stone says. "It’s the childhood home of guitarist Bob Stinson and his kid brother Tommy, who started playing bass after his older brother gave him one to stay out of trouble."

Rolling Stone also calls out Paul Westerberg and drummer Chris Mars in the summary of the landmark, saying, "The group went on to become one of the leading lights of the 1980s underground."

The music landmark mention is the second big bit of news The Replacements have received this week. On Tuesday night, the group received its first nomination for a possible induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
