All In The Family

Jeff and Spencer Tweedy

Jeff and Spencer Tweedy

 

I saw the band Tweedy this week.  The core of the band consists of Jeff Tweedy on vocals and guitar and his son Spencer on drums.  Spencer’s loopy drum style constantly kept his dad on his toes as opposed to the precision drumming style of Glenn Kotche, Jeff’s drummer in the band Wilco.  It made for a completely different dynamic and I’m sure Jeff was thrilled to have his 19-year old son on stage with him.

Van Halen also announced this week they are touring again this summer.  Wolfgang Van Halen will once again play bass with his dad, Eddie and Uncle Alex.  I just wish they’d invite Michael Anthony to at least sing back up vocals to help support Diamond Dave.

 

 

A band has often been described as a marriage so why not make it a family?  Here are a few other parents that have brought their kids along to join in during playtime.
