Weezer Is Dead; Long Live Weezer
Rivers Cuomo says don't hold your breath for a new Weezer album. Their latest CD quoted Shakespeare's last play "The Tempest" -- somehow giving people the idea this might be their last album -- and Cuomo says that looks likely. Of course, he's a pretty confused guy. He's been writing tunes but insists, "I don't know what'll happen with these songs -- if anything. ... I certainly don't see them becoming Weezer songs, and I don't really see the point of a solo career. So we'll just have to see." Okaaaay. I guess that leaves forming a new band. His label rightly says, Whatever, he's said this sort of thing before.
