Soul Asylum - Statement on Karl Mueller

Soul Asylum - Statement on Karl Mueller
On Friday, June 17, founding Soul Asylum member Karl Mueller died in his Minneapolis home due to complications from the treatment of his cancer. Prior to Karl's death, the three original Soul Asylum members - Karl, Daniel Murphy, and Dave Pirner - released over 10 studio albums and put on hundreds of thousands of miles touring in their 25 years together. Needless to say, they are as much family as they are bandmates and Dave and Daniel are profoundly saddened by the loss of Karl.
They recently completed a new studio album that is set to be released in early 2006. Even though Karl was in various stages of treatment during the recording, he played bass on all of the tracks.   
Karl is survived by his wife, Mary Beth, and his mother, Mary. The funeral is on Wednesday at Lakewood Cemetery Chapel in Minneapolis. In lieu of flowers, please send memorials to:
