Grant formed Husker Du with bandmates Bob Mould and Greg Norton in 1979 helping to usher in a new wave of punk with hardcore leanings, but at the same time, melodic and digestible, particularly to the college crowd of the 1980s.
Mould writes on his Facebook page that Hart "was a gifted visual artist, a wonderful story teller, and a frighteningly talented musician. Everyone touched by his spirit will always remember". "There are no words that describe the huge impact that Grant Hart and Bob Mould's music on Green Day". "I miss you. Be with the angels".
Hart died Thursday (Sept. 14) following a years-in length battle with growth, as indicated by reports.
Armstrong explains that when Green Day first started, Husker Du was his favorite band. Ultimately, they cited "three people going their separate ways" as the reason to disband; Hart was recovering from a heroin addiction, Mould was in the process of quitting drinking and Norton was newly married.
"A tribute concert honoring Hart took place in Minneapolis in July".
