In the midst of crushing blows to our economy, and today's news that MUZAK and SIRIUS/XM will soon file for bankruptcy, it's nice to know that the business of Wilco is strong and steady. This is the trailer to their soon to be released DVD "Ashes of American Flags", which is also a title to a song from their stellar Yankee Hotel Foxtrot album(2002).
Seeing Wilco live for the first time in 2003 at Irving Plaza in NYC(now called The Fillmore!?) was one of the highlights of my life,right up there with jumping out of a hot tub and doing snow angels after 20 Piels tall boys and slaying a tough NYC crowd with a live band karaoke version of War Pigs. I remember that night with Wilco fondly and I have been devout ever since.
Jeff Tweedy is one of the most passionate,engaging lead men out there today and the band is second to none. His son Spencer has a blog way cooler than mine at www.spencertweedy.com. Its very much worth a look. He is all of 13 years old.
Look for Wilco's DVD Ashes of American Flags in Mid April...I hope to review it right here.
