Grant Hart (ex-Hüsker Dü) Suffers House Fire

Former Hüsker Dü and Nova Mob member Grant Hart was the recent victim of a house fire . Two rooms in his home burned, and Hart was sent to the hospital. He is fine now, according to friend. His two cats survived, which he is very happy about, but he did lose his favorite guitar and some other equipment. According to the Star Tribune, "Reps from First Avenue and the Turf Club said they were interested in holding benefits for Hart if needed."
