How To Book WEEZER For Your Event!
Weezer may be available for your next special event!
GRAMMY AWARD winning Weezer is an American rock band formed in Los
Angeles, California, in 1992.
guitar pop artisans from Los Angeles, California, USA, Weezer
originally was comprised of Rivers Cuomo, Brian Bell, Matt Sharp (later
replaced by Mikey Welsh), and Patrick Wilson. Cuomo grew up in rural
Connecticut before deciding to move to Los Angeles at the age of 18 to
form a band. It was too little immediate success, but tortured by the
sundering of a relationship, he began to write his own songs.
Bell first learned guitar in Tennessee by playing along
to television shows, such as Hee Haw, picking on a ukulele his
grandmother won at a bingo game. Sharp brought the unlikely influences
of Talk Talk and Gary Numan to the bass player's role.
Wilson was introduced to the other members via fellow Buffalo citizen
Pat Fin (of Winkler). The four protagonists had met as strangers who
found themselves abroad in Los Angeles, and decided to form a band
together. The official date of formation was 14 February 1992, signing
to DGC Records in June of the following year.
the back of offbeat singles, "Undone - The Sweater Song" and
"Buddy Holly" (a tale of high school prom rejection featuring
a memorable Happy Days pastiche video), and seven months' touring their
native country, their self-titled debut album, produced by Ric Ocasek of The Cars and Chris Shaw in New York, went on to sell nearly a million
Their preference for goofy garage aesthetics soon
distinguished them, and, with fuzzboxes and falsetto harmonies (from
Sharp) to the fore, comparisons to
They Might Be Giants hardly
delineated their musical compass, despite helping to pinpoint their
humor. The participants, meanwhile, remained awestruck at the depth of
their appeal: "We've sold all these albums when, honestly speaking,
we're a super straight-ahead American guitar garage rock band."
The title of their 1996 album infuriated the security
company Pinkerton Service, and they issued legal proceedings shortly
after its release. Wilson and Sharp also recorded with the Rentals; the
latter left Weezer in 1998 to concentrate on this new outfit. The third collection, "The Green Album"
was a sparkling return to the infectious heavy pop of their debut.
"Don't Let Go," "Photograph" and "Hash
Pipe" all follow each other on the album, a glorious opening suite
of power chord heaven.
