Jeff Tweedy & Sons Cover Neil Young, Big Star, Velvet Underground & More On ‘Tweedy Show’
Jeff Tweedy of Wilco covered songs by The Velvet Underground, Neil Young, Big Star, Guided By Voices, Roger Miller and Debbie Friedman with his sons, Sammy Tweedy and Spencer Tweedy, on Monday’s installment of The Tweedy Show. The Belleville, Illinois native also performed a new song, a Wilco classic and more during Episode 46 of the Tweedy family’s livestream series.
The episode started with Jeff performing The Kinks’ “Til Death Do Us Part.” Jeff then played a solo acoustic version of “I Must Be High” from Wilco’s 1995 debut studio album A.M. and offered “Please Tell My Brother” from his time in supergroup Golden Smog. Sammy then handled lead vocals on a string of Debbie Friedman’s “Mi Shebeirach,” Velvet Underground’s “Pale Blue Eyes,” Guided By Voices’ “Teenage FBI,” Young’s “Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere” and Big Star’s “In The Street.”
Spencer was on drums for the last two and stayed behind the kit for “Too Far Apart,” another song off A.M. Next up was a new song tentatively titled “Cold Water Falling,” which also featured Spencer on drums. The pair jammed on “Just What I Needed” by The Cars and James Gang’s “Funk #49” before the episode ended in traditional style with a cover of Roger Miller’s “Reincarnation.”
