Here’s a cool one from archives. In 1994 Brian Henneman of the Bottle Rockets, formerly the guitar tech for Uncle Tupelo, played lead guitar on Wilco’s debut, A.M. Twelve years later the two reunited when Tweedy joined the Bottle Rockets for a few songs at a Chicago club.
Said Henneman, “I don’t know if it’s history, but it’s a notable moment. A statistical moment. More statistical than historical, but it’s historical depending on how fanatical you are. If you’re fanatical, it’s historical; if you’re not fanatical then it’s statistical.”
’bout says it all, doesn’t it? Here’s the brilliant “Passenger Side” and “Casino Queen” from the Wilco debut, performed by Tweedy and the Bottle Rockets.
