HELP!

If you can figure out the band behind this riddle - I'm yours, like it our not. Please help me!

The driving force behind this act began his career in a band that shared half of its name with the birthplace of a famous fried-peanut-butter-sandwich-eater.

Maybe the band is Wilco: Elvis might have been the fried-peanut-butter-sandwich-eater. He was born in Tupelo. Uncle Tupelo was a band in the nineties (and eighties) that had Jeff Tweedy in it as a singer and songwriter. He is now the main guy in Wilco.

If I'm right, where do you want to meet?

yea larry, that was the 1st hit i got with google on "tupelo musical bands".... uncle tupelo. be that as it may, i think mandy is looking for johnny tupelo & the sidekicks featuring one johnny tupelo. not unlike elvis, they have the classic rockabilly sound.... the 3rd hit from google. actually uncle tupelo appears to get more hits so good luck larry, but johhny is my sentimental favorite. anyway mandy, you’re already mine ;-)

Don't want to freak anyone out here. I don't really expect you to meet me if my guess turns out to be correct. But I would like to know the answer, when you find it...

I'm not scared of you Larry Jones! Bring it on!

I don't think anyone is right, though. Sad. So sad.

I'll keep looking. You'll know if you are right because when you go to the band's main site there will be an Austin City Limits Grackle.
If I find all the grackles and click on them, I could win VIP passes for the festival.

Which means I would have 2 other tickets I've already bought for sale!

Thanks for the help and I'll let you guys know....who is it?

I do think that Larry is right on with Wilco. There is no other choice. But the bird isn't there. Maybe I was just a day late on this one.

Thanks you guys!
