The Replacements recorded some of the most moving and visceral music of their time. Author Bob Mehr tells the definitive story of the band, which officially broke up in 1991, in “Trouble Boys,” a book out March 1.

In 1981, Greg Helgeson brought the band — drummer Chris Mars, bassist Tommy Stinson, singer Paul Westerberg and guitarist Bob Stinson — to the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis for a portrait. “Essentially I was looking to do this like a photographer would do with a single portrait of someone. Getting these guys to do a group photo was a challenge. I don’t think they liked that part. They were such different personalities. You had to shoot fast, as they liked to move on quickly to the next idea.”Greg Helgeson
