Or so thought rapper Diddy and his “entourage” at the Grammy Awards several years ago.

Tweedy tells EW:

The first time Wilco was nominated for a Grammy it was for Best Contemporary Folk Album for the Mermaid Avenue album [Wilco’s 1998 collaboration with Billy Bragg]. So I was standing outside the bathrooms waiting for my wife and some other guys in the band. And as they went into the bathroom everybody kind of unburdened themselves of their programs and their coats and jackets and stuff, so I’m standing there holding a big stack of programs. And Puffy and his entourage came up to me and took one of my programs. Like I was standing there offering them to people! I guess I just looked like a page. I didn’t look like I belonged there, is the main point of the story. I might have been beaten with a diamond-encrusted cane, but things didn’t go that way. So I feel lucky.
