Publisher's Summary

Through his pioneering work in the legendary country-punk band Uncle Tupelo, to his enduring legacy as the creative force behind the unclassifiable sound of Wilco, Jeff Tweedy has weaved his way between the underground and the mainstream - and back again. 

Funny, disarming and deeply honest, his memoir casts light on his unique creative process and the stories that shaped his life and career, from a childhood spent in Illinois to the release of No Depression in the early '90s - which set the blueprint for alt-country - and later working with Mavis Staples and, posthumously, Woody Guthrie.

Amazing

Great listen for Wilco fans, music fans or anyone who likes a good memoir. Like much of Tweedy’s songwriting, he’s taken a slightly different angle to writing a memoir, and it pays off. Jeff’s storytelling and narration are warm as he tells stories from his life and imparts wisdom he’s picked up along the way about writing and playing music, and well, life in general. It’s also very funny at times.

Highly recommended!

Honest and vulnerable

Tweedy really let's you into his world as he maps out his journey through Uncle Tupelo and Wilco. a very honest and vulnerable account about making music, having a family and the complexities of being in a band

Honest, open and funny.

As a fan of virtually all of Jeff’s projects, I really enjoyed the insight and the dry humour to be had here. I especially liked hearing about his beginnings with music and his guitar playing....which echoed my own in so many ways. Honest, open and a pleasure to listen to.

Thanks Jeff.

Wilco will love you

A really insightful listen, Jeff goes through his journey from Uncle Tupelo to where Wilco are today, covering everything you'd want to know. He's very honest about why Uncle Tupelo split, the reasons for members of Wilco coming and going and his battle with addiction. I loved hearing about his musical influences, how he started with punk (very similar to the Beastie Boys) and progressed into all kinds of styles and influences that we often hear in his music today. I particularly liked how he describes the process he uses to put together songs, that its often the music then the lyrics. A must for Wilco fans, thoroughly enjoyable, especially as he reads himself.

Best performance of an audiobook I’ve heard.

Listens like all Jeff audio warm, funny and interesting with deep insight. The vocal is like a friend telling you about himself. The parts with spencer and suzie are unexpected and tremendous.
I loved this better than just reading the book, like a modern memoir should be.
