Topic - Jeff Tweedy
A couple of decades ago, a young, tough Jeff Tweedy thought he was punk rock.
Listening to a new Wilco album is like hailing a cab in an unfamiliar part of town. Sometimes, you get the ride you expect. Other times, the experience is full of unexpected twists and turns that take you far away from your original destination.
"But there's a much more elusive goal that I think takes a lot of work and I think is just valuable, and that's a goal to stay inspired," he said. "It's a goal to keep feeding this idea. That's kind of your job now, to stay into it, to not get jaded, to listen to young bands."
"To be honest, at this age, I feel like what we're doing now is more punk rock than anything I could've pulled off during the conformity of punk rock," Mr. Tweedy said. "To me, growing up and being an adult playing rock music is almost revolutionary. I'm not talking about just getting older. I'm talking about acting like a mature person and advocating growing up, which gets a lot of bad ink as far as rock people go."
