Fifteen minutes feels like the blink of an eye when you finally get the opportunity to ask Wilco's Jeff Tweedy everything you've always wanted to know. But when fifteen minutes is what you've been gifted, you make the absolute most of it. During a mid-morning phone chat, OpenAir's morning show host Alisha delved into the life behind Wilco's frontman, covering more than just music. Listen as Tweedy talks about fatherhood, working with his musical heroes, young bands that inspire him, starting a label and why he loves playing in Colorado. They also exchange laughs about if he'll come do a weather forecast on OpenAir and his likeness in the animated "Dawned On Me" music video (where they hang out with Popeye and friends)!
Hear our interview below and catch Wilco at Red Rocks Amphitheater Friday, June 22nd and Saturday, June 23rd.
