Biography:
Thomas Eugene "Tommy" Stinson (born October 6, 1966) is an American rock musician. He came to prominence in the 1980s as the bass guitarist for The Replacements, one of the definitive American alternative rock groups. After their breakup in 1991, Stinson formed the short-lived Bash & Pop, acting as lead vocalist, guitarist and frontman. In the mid-1990s he was the singer and bassist for the rock band Perfect, and eventually joined the hard rock band Guns N' Roses in 1998.

Stinson released his debut solo album, Village Gorilla Head in 2004 and subsequently joined Soul Asylum for the completion of their album The Silver Lining, and was a member of the band for the album's tour in 2006 before joining them as a permanent member until 2011. He released his second solo album, critically acclaimed One Man Mutiny, on his own Done To Death Music label in 2011. [Wikipedia, August 2016]

Quotes:

The Replacements were one of my favorite bands. I remember seeing The Replacements opening for X when I was 14, and Tommy was my age. You know what's funny is that I met Tommy on a session with Yoshiki years and years ago. After that we became like best friends. [Ultimate Guitar, November 2008]
Introducing Tommy: On the bass guitar, the band who comes from the band with a perfect name for this organization, The Replacements, Mr. Tommy Stinson [Las Vegas, January 1, 2011]
Tommy Stinson worked very well taking the band through the rehearsals for Las Vegas and Rock In Rio [Axl interview Rock & Pop FM Argentina, Rock & Pop FM, January 22nd 2001]
Tommy's one of my best friends, and he has been for a while. We've done loads of recording sessions together. And with all of the other people that are involved with Guns N' Roses, it's a pretty unbelievable band [We're catching our groove again now; Albany NY Times Union Thursday, November 21, 2002]
Tommy, who was always a punk guy, knows I grew up with a lot of that stuff, and we connect on that level [HTGTH, September 2010]
Tommy is a great fucking guy, and I always come away glad when our paths have crossed over the years [Seattle Weekly, Reverb, October, 2010]
Tommy and I, we get along great. He's one of a kind, man. I tell you, the first time he walked into the studio, I said, 'Dude, that's the guy.' He hadn't even played a note, but I could just tell. He's everything you need to be a bass player in a rock band. I don't want to say he takes control, but he does sort of guide us through rehearsals and, to me, it's important to have someone in that position. He's inspirational and he brings so much to the table. It could be any band - if he's committed to them, he's going to make them a thousand times better [twincities.com, November 2011]
Talking about band interacting during the 2011 shows: Now we're trying to figure out how to interact with each other a little bit more on the stage, you know, and how far to take it. Tommy was slamming me the other night, and then, the next night, I was just having fun, but wait I realized, I got him in a headlock! [laughs] [Eddie Trunk interview, November 2011]
When I got the call to audition [in GN'R], Tommy Stinson was already one of my best friends. I was a huge Replacements fan growing up and I think Tommy is an amazing songwriter and musician [Maximum Ink Music, December 2011]
Tommy, he’s a great singer and songwriter [Boomerocity, January 2013]
Duff told me he was going to fill in for what's his name [dailystar.co.uk, June 2014]

Another Rock Star photo worthy of a big poster. Kat Benzova and whoever is paying her are doing right by these guys. I look forward to these tour photos appearing in a book someday, a book the band members can be proud of appearing in.

Very nicely edited little webTV blurb on Tommy making music in Beirut pub along with Nader from (cool name) the Wanton Bishops on harp. I really enjoyed the format, especially as it was all Tommy hanging with patrons and musicians and no unnecessary voice over to inform viewers who have no idea who he is.

Rock legend dishes up chicken at hospital

In the Columbia Memorial Hospital cafeteria, musicians Tommy Stinson and Chip Roberts cooked their special Uncle Sippy’s Braised Chicken recipe. Those who bought the chicken dinner were entered into a drawing for a signed copy of Stinson’s latest album, “One Man Mutiny.”


Tommy Stinson wears many hats, most of them musical, since he was the multi-instrumentalist for the Replacements and is the current bass player for Guns N’ Roses, but Thursday he wore an altogether different type of hat — line cook.

Stinson is a resident of Columbia County and took time from his schedule to engage the community and showcase his cooking skills in the cafeteria at Columbia Memorial Hospital.

So what’s a former member of one of America’s greatest post-punk bands doing in the kitchen?

“It’s great to cook,” he said. “I spent so many years on the road eating out.”

Stinson was invited to serve at the hospital by Richelle Martin, hospital retail dietary manager, and per diem cook Chip Roberts, also a resident of Columbia County.

Roberts is Stinson’s uncle, and played slide guitar on “One Man Mutiny,” Stinson’s second solo album released in 2011. Two albums Stinson made with the Replacements — “Pleased to Meet Me” and “Tim” — are considered by many to be American rock classics.

Martin said Roberts loves to cook and feels the hospital staff prepares great meals and wanted to promote that to the community. He had suggested involving Stinson for a while, and Martin said everything finally fell into place.

Stinson and Roberts prepared a dish named Uncle Sippy’s braised chicken thighs. It features Uncle Sippy’s Seasoning Blend which Roberts created for Cento Fine Foods.

At the cooking station in the cafeteria, Stinson was simmering artichoke hearts and cooking the cannellini beans while Roberts was braising the thighs.

“I’m slowly getting over my fear of hospitals,” Stinson joked as he posed for a picture for a fan.

Roberts said he and Stinson had been cooking together for about six years. Roberts has a home studio, and when he and Stinson are not recording or on the road, they work together in the kitchen.

Carlton Jackson, who works in the cafeteria, said he was glad that Roberts and Stinson were promoting the hospital.

“I think it’s good for the kitchen staff,” he said. “We work really hard and provide great food for the community.”

Everyone who purchased the thighs also had the chance to fill out a raffle ticket to win an autographed vinyl or CD of One Man Mutiny.

Stinson’s next community endeavor is Hudson Pride Foundation’s Musical Workshop, being held 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at the Hudson Opera House, 327 Warren St.
