    He is perennial favorite of music critics yet his albums don't sell well.
    His band purposely played really lousy shows.
    He was addicted to drugs and alcohol.
    He smokes.
    His solo work has been deemed mediocre at best.
    He told The Replacements original lead guitarist, Bob Stinson, to either chug a bottle of champagne or leave the stage during the show. Bob was enjoying a brief moment of sobriety at the time, but quickly returned to drinking
    He then kicked Bob out of the band for being too addicted to drugs and alcohol.

    He was banned from 'Saturday Night Live' when a member of the Replacements cussed on the air. He did however play on 'SNL' again.
    The Replacements failed to show up for the 'Bastards of Young' video due to a drinking binge. The director simply filmed a man laying on a couch tapping his shoes to the beat, at the end of the song, the man trashes his stereo.
    While fellow college music bands like REM moved into mainstream music audiences and more money, Paul has permanently remained an alternative rocker.
    When asked why the Replacements never made it 'big' Paul said, 'We didn't try hard enough.'

    'Tim' is considered by many critics to be one of the greatest albums of the 1980's.
