Great Quotations: Jeff Tweedy

“I think there’s a period before you get onstage that’s all anxiety—it’s like the definition of anxiety; any kind of anxiety is not being able to be present in your body, worried about the future or things that are irrational when you can comprehend that you don’t have any control over them. It’s just being forced by music back into the present. It’s probably one of the reasons that music has been such a consolation. Even listening to it re-centers you in time.”

– Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy (via St. Louis Magazine)
