Wilco founder Jeff Tweedy has spoken out about the death of former bandmate Jay Bennett at age 45, saying he is “deeply saddened.”

This statement was posted behind a tiny link in the upper righthand corner of the homepage of the Wilco web site today:

We are all deeply saddened by this tragedy. We will miss Jay as we remember him — as a truly unique and gifted human being and one who made welcome and significant contributions to the band’s songs and evolution. Our thoughts go out to his family and friends in this very difficult time.
