Paul Westerberg Net Worth $9 Million
Paul Westerberg spent his childhood in his hometown, where he was raised by his parents, Mary Louise and Harold Robert Westerberg; he has younger sister, Mary Lucia, who works as a DJ at the local radio station. He was a student at The Academy of the Holy Angels in Richfield, Minnesota. Prior to becoming a musician, Paul worked as a janitor for US Senator David Durenberger, but one day when he walking home, he heard a band practicing and decided to try himself as a musician.
Thus, Paul’s professional musical career began in 1979, when he co-founded The Replacements alongside guitarist Bob Stinson, bass guitarist Tommy Stinson and drummer Chris Mars. The band performed at local clubs, and in no time reached success in the Twin Cities punk scene. Their debut studio album entitled “Sorry Ma, Forgot To Take Out The Trash” was released through Twin/Tone Records in 1981, which was critically acclaimed, but without any major success. Their two next albums were also released through the same label – “Hootenanny” (1983), and “Let It Be” (1984). In the following year, they signed to Sire Records and released their fourth album “Tim”, which was their first major label release, reaching No. 83 on the Billboard Music Chart’s Top 200, adding a considerable amount to his net worth. The band disbanded in 1991, and by that time they had released three more studio albums – “Pleased To Meet Me” (1987), “Don’t Tell A Soul” (1989), and “All Shook Down” (1990), which peaked at No. 69 on the Billboard Music Chart’s Top 200, addig somewhat to Paul’s net worth.
Afterwards, Paul continued with his musical projects as a solo artist, writing soundtracks for such TV series and film titles as “Friends”, “Singles”, and “Melrose Place”. In 1993, he released his debut solo album – “14 Songs” – via Reprise Records, which sold over 160,000 copies in the US. In the following year, he recorded the duet “Let’s Do It” with Jett for the soundtrack of “Tank Girl”, and before the end of the decade, released “Eventually” in 1996, and “Suicaine Gratifaction” in 1999, increasing his net worth by a large margin.
To speak further about his musical career, Paul released his fourth studio album entitled “Stereo” in 2002, which was acclaimed as one of his best works during his career. In the next year “Come Feel Me Tremble” came out, and in 2004 he released “Folker”. Since then, he has written a number of songs, including “Wild Wild Life”, “3oclockreep”, and “Streets of Laredo”, among others, all of which contributed to his net worth.
Most recently, he co-founded the band The I Don’t Cares, with Juliana Hatfield. Their debut album “Wild Stab” was released in 2016, so his net worth is certainly stillrising.
Regarding his personal life, Paul Westerberg has been married two times. His first wife was Lori Susan Bizer (1981-1996), while his second wife was Laurie Lindeen (1997-2014), with whom he has a son. His current residence is in Edina, Minnesota. Paul was addicted to drugs and alcohol, but has been sober since 1990.

|1||Brother of radio DJ Mary Lucia|
|2||Gave up drugs and alcohol following the disbanding of The Replacements in 1992, and was successfully treated for depression in 1998.|
|3||Can't Hardly Wait was named after the Replacements song of the same name, and acts as the theme song during the ending credits.|
|4||Actually, he released two albums this year, Stereo, and Mono (under the alias of Grandpa Boy). The album that got The 'Mats noticed would definitely have to be, "Sorry Ma, Forgot To Take Out The Trash", which was released by the Twin/Tone label. Across town "rivals" Husker Du, were jealous of them because they played less than a dozen shows before they were signed. Bassist Tommy Stinson wasn't even in High School by this point. None of The Replacements graduated high school in fact. Bob Stinson, who played guitar in The 'Mats for the first seven years, was found dead in his apartment in 1995, due to an apparent overdose. The 'Mats never really got the mainstream recognition that they deserved.|
|5||His latest album, a double disc titled 'Stereo,' was released on April 23, 2002. It is his fourth solo effort since the break up of the Replacements in 1992.|
|6||Son Johnny was born in 1998.|
|7||Westerburg High School, the fictional high school used in the cult classic film, Heathers, was named in honor of Westerberg by the film's writer.|
|8||His albums with the Replacements, 1984's 'Let it Be', 1985's 'Tim', and 1987's 'Pleased to Meet Me', are considered among the best released in the 1980s.|
|9||Although he composed the soundtrack to "Singles," the music of the Replacements is featured in Cameron Crowe's other two films, "Say Anything" and "Jerry Maguire."|
|10||Paul Westerberg is the lead singer and songwriter for the Replacements, a critical darling during the eighties.|
|1||I'm not a perfectionist when it comes to songwriting. I'm more of a perfectionist when it comes to the instrumentation. I'll let nonsense words go by just 'cause they feel good.|
|2||A rock 'n' roll band needs to be able to get under people's skin. You should be able to clear the room at the drop of a hat.|
