“When Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy was a young punk growing up in Belleville, Illinois, he felt sure about what sort of music he did and didn’t like: Minutemen, yes; Neil Young, no. ‘We thought that hippies were the enemies,’ he says now. ‘I don’t know where we got that idea.’ In an interview with Jancee Dunn recorded in April in Washington, DC, Tweedy explains how a fresh appraisal of his own musical tastes changed his palate — for the better — and why he thinks the idea of a generation gap was destructive to young musicians growing up in the ’70s and ’80s.”
