Jeff Tweedy: Books, Drugs & Rock 'n' Roll

"I still can't believe you're including the part about stealing my mom's cancer medication". In his new memoir "Let's Go (So We Can Get Back)", Jeff Tweedy transcribes a conversation he had with his wife Susie about how much of his own struggle with opioid addiction to include in the book. Tweedy shares some of those stories with World Cafe, including the challenges he faced in rehab and recovery, and his complicated relationships with former bandmates Jay Farrar from Uncle Tupelo and Jay Bennett from Wilco.
