Jeffrey Scot "Jeff" Tweedy (born August 25, 1967) is an American songwriter, musician and leader of the band Wilco. Tweedy joined rockabilly band The Plebes with high school friend Jay Farrar in the early 1980s, but Tweedy's musical interests caused one of Farrar's brothers to quit. The Plebes changed their name to The Primitives in 1984, and subsequently to Uncle Tupelo. Uncle Tupelo garnered enough support to earn a record deal and to tour nationally. After releasing four albums, the band broke up in 1994 because of conflicts between Tweedy and Farrar. He later recruited Jay Benett, and after drug problems, Benett too, was fired. Tweedy soon went on to made Sukierae (2014), and Warm (2018). He has also written a memoir, called Let's Go (So We Can Get Back), a Memoir of Recording And Discording With Wilco, ETC.
