Bonus Trivia

.

Suffered from chronic migraines for years, which led to an addiction to painkillers that he treated with rehabilitation in 2004.

.

Appeared as a singer-songwriter on "Parks and Recreation" in 2014.

.

Was initially disinterested in participating in the Mermaid Avenue project, due largely to the political nature of the Woody Guthrie material. He was persuaded to record the albums at the insistence of Jay Bennett, but Wilco's efforts were minimal.

.

Recorded two albums - Down by the Old Mainstream (1996) and Weird Tales (1998)- as part of Golden Smog, a supergroup of sorts with Dan Murphy and Dave Pirnier of Soul Asylum and members of the Jayhawks.

.

Prior to learning to play the guitar, Tweedy would tell friends and classmates that he was proficient on the instrument; fear of being called upon to demonstrate his talent lend to him actually learning to play it while recuperating from a bicycle accident.

.

Recorded songs for the soundtrack to Ethan Hawke's "Chelsea Walls" (2003).
