Jeff Tweedy Interview: Festivals and Uncle Tupelo Reunion

Tweedy said this to Spin:

SPIN: Is there a particular festival that you wish you'd attended?

JEFF TWEEDY: I don't think I would have wanted to be at Woodstock without a helicopter, but that would have been pretty amazing. To be honest with you -- and this isn't going to be a very popular comment for a magazine doing a huge feature on festivals -- I generally wouldn't go to one of these unless someone was paying me. I don't mean that to sound crass. I'm just spoiled because, for the last 20 years of my life, I've been able to watch bands from the side of the stage.
SPIN: You'll be playing Bonnaroo with the Police -- are all these band
reunions tempting you to re-form Uncle Tupelo?
JT: All I can say is, right now it feels like that would be kind of silly and wouldn't be very productive musically. And as a music fan, I don't know how many times it's happened where I said, "Wow, there's a lot of great artistic ground that just wasn't mined yet." But at the same time, I would never rule it out. And contrary to most people my age, I don't think I ever liked the Police.

Speaking of Reunions, Blue Mountain is apparently reuniting and have tour dates.
