So, a guy named James Burns is not a fan of the band Weezer and would like to raise $10 million to give to the band to break up.
I have never been a fan of this band. I think that they are pretty much horrible, and always have been. Even in the early 90’s.
Every year, Rivers Cuomo swears that he’s changed, and that their new album is the best thing that he’s done since “Pinkerton,” and what happens? Another pile of crap like “Beverly Hills” or “I’m Your Daddy.”
Burns figures that if each person who bought Pinkerton gives $12, they'll have enough to raise the money.
Of course, Weezer's drummer, Patrick Wilson, responded by saying, "if they can make it 20, we'll do the "deluxe breakup"!
It's funny... I remember being in college at Auburn University and going to a little place called Little Ireland's. During the course of the night, a solo acoustic guitarist, whose name escapes me at the moment, was performing on the small stage.
A man who often lounged in the bar playing chess got up, checkbook in hand, walked to the stage and promptly offered the singer $150 if he would pack up his gear and stop playing. The guitarist accepted and left.
I'm doubting that Weezer will do the same thing.
