Billboard is reporting that Replacements principals Paul Westerberg and Tommy Stinson got together last month to collaborate in Minneapolis with Soul Asylum / Prince drummer Michael Bland. Stinson told the Minneapolis Star-Tribune that the trio didn't record anything yet since "that's getting to first base. We're sort of still in the dugout chewing gum." On Westerberg he commented they were "good friends, and I'm sure we're going to work together again."
Billboard followed up with Westerberg's manager Darren Hill, who put a damper on any reunion talk by claiming that there are "no plans beyond that right now."
The Replacements split in 1991. This year Rhino issued expanded reissues of the band's complete studio catalog.
