Jeff Tweedy Interviewed in the New York Times

The new Wilco album dropped last week on June 30th, 2009 and I was in quaint little Jacksonville, Oregon for an outdoor show by the band on the same day. A great show, and a spectacular venue.
Meanwhile Jeff Tweedy was interviewed in the New York Times and saved my favourite answer for the last question:

How would you describe your singing voice, in general?
Somewhere between Gordon Lightfoot and a tea kettle. I would not get past the first round of “American Idol.”

The comparison is apt, and I just found my old Yankee Hotel Foxtrot tape in my car and noticed: A-side is Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, B-side is Gordon Lightfoot (who I also saw earlier this year for the first, and perhaps last time given his age.)
