Jeff Tweedy Covers John Lennon “God”

Last week Paul McCartney paid homage to John Lennon to mark the 30th Anniversary of his bandmate’s death. Obviously you didn’t need to know Lennon to be affected by his murder, and tributes were various. Jeff Tweedy joined Wilco members John Stirratt and Pat Sansone’s other band the Autumn Defense on 12/8/10 for a rendition of John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band’s still-moving, defiant, elegiac 1970 classic “God.” It happened at the Paramount in Charlottesville, VA. Note the shift from Yoko to Wilco at the 3-minute mark.
