Tweedy Links Wilco Fans To Smile Fanatics

WILCO frontman JEFF TWEEDY has no idea what kind of person ends up a fan of his cult band, but thinks an obsession with hunting down classic lost albums has something to do with it.

If he was forced to guess, the CAN'T STAND IT singer believes music archivists end up liking Wilco, especially those who seek out various versions of legendary missing 1960s BEACH BOYS album SMILE.

Tweedy says, "I still haven't got them figured out. I would say a typical Wilco fan would be a really educated music person who tends to obsess about stuff like Smile bootlegs.

"Sweetly retarded people. Hey, I'm just kidding."
