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.

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.

So much more than a standard rock biography

Inciteful, wise and with a wry humour - Jeff reads his biography very well. Essential for Wilco fans!

Love Jeff Tweedy!

I didn’t know Jeff or much about Wilco or Uncle Tupelo but from initially listening to his How To Write One Song book and now this one, I do feel like I love the guy now. Honest, touching and oddly comforting, I love his style and what a life story. I have to say I gave his How to Write One Song book 5 stars though as it was her best songwriting book I’ve come across.

Superb autobiography worth listening to read by the author

I really enjoyed listening to this rather than reading it. Hearing from “the horse’s mouth” adds another layer to this very thoughtful, reflective and interesting autobiography. I got a real sense of Jeff Tweedy, the person, and his life and growth so far. Not just as a Wilco/Jeff Tweedy fan, but just as another human being.

Awesome

This is one of the best music autobiography’s. Honest and balanced. I wasn’t a huge Wilco fan (before) listening to this. But Jeff’s story got me to explore his whole musical universe and gave me a great insight into his wonderful artistry. He comes across as such a humble likeable person. Highly recommended.

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.

great story by an amazing storyteller

I found it a little rough getting started, but once it got going it was beautiful.
I loved his honesty and his perspective, and there were a few parts that brought me to tears.
good enough to listen to again, for sure.

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
