Default Weezer R.I.P.



Quote:
NEW YORK (AP) Rivers Cuomo says that, for now, Weezer is "done." Cuomo, the band's bespectacled songwriter and frontman, told MTV that while he remains in touch with his bandmates, "we've never mentioned getting together."
"Really, for the moment, we are done," he said. "And I'm not certain we'll ever make a record again, unless it becomes really obvious to me that we need to do one."

Weezer has released five albums since forming in 1993. The group took a considerable break between 1996's Pinkerton and 2001's self-titled disc (typically called The Green Album ). The band's last release was Make Believe, in 2005.

The liner notes of that album led to conjecture that it was Weezer's last. They included a quote from a parting soliloquy in Shakespeare's Tempest, the playwright's last play.

Cuomo, 36, said he has been writing songs, but said, "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."

Jim Merlis, a spokesman for Geffen said that the label had no official response, but did add Cuomo has made similar statements in the past.

Cuomo recently graduated from Harvard and married his longtime girlfriend, Kyoko Ito.

Haven't put anything out that I really liked in ten years. I'm never one to give up hope on a band completely, but they've been in a constant downhill slide, and I wouldn't be expecting anything great from them if they stayed together.

Their last few cds were garbage so this is probably for the best.

The blue album was fecking ass kicking sweetness, Pinkerton is also great... The green album was good, their last two albums were disapointments.

Make Believe is probably their worst album.

But I guess they were great while they lasted.

Although I'm a little disappointed to see them leave the music scene. Their shows weren't too amazing, but theyw ere great nonetheless. Oh well.
