Wilco

 

In the last decade, the members of alternative rock band Wilco have experienced the highs and lows of a performing life. And they keep coming back for more. Since 1994, the band has released 9 albums. Their latest is “The Whole Love”. Wilco brings the show to Birmingham’s Sloss Furnaces tonight. WBHM music producer Kevin Lehner caught up with Wilco front man Jeff Tweedy recently to talk about the new album and what making music means to Tweedy.
