Wilco

Liderados por el gran Jeff Tweedy, se forman en 1994 en la ciudad de Chicago.
El sonido de la banda atrapa desde un primer momento al transportarnos a otra dimensión donde la música sesentosa es “la onda”. Y Wilco encaja a la perfección entre las bandas de esa época.
Wilco ha sufrido diversos cambios desde su formación, con solo el vocalista/compositor Jeff Tweedy y el bajista John Stirratt como miembros fijos desde el inicio. Desde principios de 2004 a la actualidad, la banda consta del guitarrista Nels Cline, los multiinstrumentistas Pat Sansone y Mikael Jorgensen y  el baterista Glenn Kotche.
La banda se caracteriza por haber explorado muchos estilos – dentro de lo que es el rock – a través de sus discos, por lo que muchos críticos los han llamado “los radiohead estadounidenses”, no por parecido musical, sino por su catálogo de diversos estilos.
Wilco es del gusto de muy poca gente, pero al momento de descubrirlos no pararas de escuchar sus discos y dejarte llevar por esa manera unica de tocar rock.
