Wilco's Tweedy Goes Solo... Only For The Moment
Jeff Tweedy, Wilco's frontman, is out on the road on a solo tour. Does this mean the end of Wilco? An interview with Tweedy gives Wilco fans reason to rest easy that more Wilco will be forthcoming.
From The Ann Arbor News (via Chromewaves) article by KEVIN RANSOM, Tweedy comments on the solo tour:

I never really thought of Wilco an 'alt-country band.' 've always just thought of Wilco's songs as folk songs. We've just like doing things in the studio, with different production touches, that we can't do on stage.
To be honest, I really don't even like that word. I liked Tom Waits' quote on that topic. He said, 'An alternative to what, silence?"
