Get Well, Slim
Slim Dunlap, who took over as lead guitarist of the Replacements after Bob Stinson was bounced out of the group in 1987, suffered a devastating right middle cerebral artery stroke Monday morning that landed him in Minnesota’s Hennepin County Medical Center. Although reports on Tuesday described Dunlap as being “sharp and aware” with his speech intact, the musician cannot move the right side of his body and faces a long road to recovery. Here’s hoping Slim feels better ASAP. He’s a talented, smart dude (evidence of the latter can be found throughout the oral history All Over But The Shouting).
