Tommy Stinson mentions off-handedly in an interview with the Jerusalem Post that he and former Replacements bandmate and Minneapolis recluse Paul Westerberg are working together on a song for a compilation that would benefit another bandmate, Slim Dunlap, who suffered a stroke.

Stinson, who tours with Guns N Roses, tells the Post: "Paul and I always end up doing things together, but I don’t think there’s any point to a reunion. There’s such baggage, more so for Paul. I still think he’s a little bummed out his career didn’t skyrocket after the Mats broke up. He’s had to deal with competing with his past, and for him it was kind of tough.”
