Tweedy On T.V.


One more tribute to Tom Verlaine, this one from Jeff & Spencer Tweedy.

I think this is quite lovely.

BTW, check out Patti Smith’s tribute to Tom in the New Yorker. It’ll bring a tear to your eye.

That's beautiful, and Jeff's comments at the end about Tom's impact on Jeff's songwriting are intriguing.

Here are a couple of worthy Television covers.

Beautiful rendition. I saw Jeff Tweedy do an acoustic cover of Marquee Moon in Philadelphia over a decade ago and he spoke about how important the song was to him. In my opinion this is also a good read.

Very, very nice, thanks for posting.

That made me think - did Tom ever record an acoustic song?
