Submit your Dear Jeffy questions
Hey Jeff! I so appreciate your music and books - thank you! Was wondering about the name for the new album. Does "Cousin" have anything to do with the TV show "The Bear", where Wilco music has been prominent and several of the characters call each other cousin?
If you could only play one guitar for the rest of your life, which would it be and why?
This is a bit of a lengthy question, but I feel important. When Indiana; under pence (BOO), passed that draconian abortion law you/Wilco boycotted playing that state until it was repealed. You took a powerful stand and stuck with it. There was some blow back, but I think overwhelmingly supportive. We now have the red states attacking everything in their fascist move to the extreme right (abortion, anti LGBTQ, anti immigrants, racists learning theories replacing history and facts & the list goes on & on). What are your feeling's now re playing these states and would you & the boys ever consider not playing them until love, intelligence and empathy come back to these backward states. I understand those fans inthose states would "suffer", but the battle is so much bigger I feel
Howdy Cap! Thanks for the never ending fountain of lovely and soul filled music. As if you aren’t busy enough, I would love to know the status of the Loose Fur album I believe was partially or fully recorded a while back. Thank you
Did you ever consider recording "A Lifetime to Find" as a duet since it's a call-and-response between you and Death? I think John would have made a great Death. Would you ever consider performing this song as a duet, with someone else singing Death's verses?
What advice would you give to a new band made up of 40 somethings with families and jobs but still want to make an impact with their music?
Jeffy - you are on the road a lot, seemingly non-stop post-COVID. Is it more 'just part of the job' and you semi-robotically go from town to town, or do you enjoy discovering something new about the towns you visit - and perhaps yourself as a result - that you might not get when in the comforts of your own home? Do you think travel/touring can make you a better songwriter/performer?
Jeff, Will any of the Iceland shows from earlier this year be released as Roadcases?
How are you?
Favorite thing you ate in Europe on this run
Ahoy! I’m curious what music does the band listen to on the tour bus? What are you all digging lately?
Maybe talk a little more about the new album and collaborating with Cate? Really looking forward to the record.
Part question, part statement...
I began writing songs after reading “How To Write One Song”. I then formed a band named “Cracked & Hooked”. One of my favorite things to hear from people is that those things have inspired them to create things. It’s the best feeling to know that. My band just won a few awards here in our SE Michigan county (best new band, best rock band, best local album) and YOU inspired it at the start.
How does all of that make you feel?
I hope it at least makes you smile.
I’m beyond proud of myself.
Hi Jeffy, is there a guitar that you sold and later regretted?
I just want to say, in a respectful yet firm tone, that I think we've all waited long enough for the second volume of The Loft Acoustic Sessions. Make it happen, Captain.
Appreciation post about Wilco t-shirts! Thanks for carrying the brand of comfort colors 100% cotton tshirts. I hope one day all merch gets switched to that brand. I love a good cotton heavy T-shirt. They hide my fat better lol. Since the about asking questions. What’s your favorite everyday shoe?
