weezer - My Name Is Jonas (live)

Recorded on 11/27/1994 in Rochester, NY. Immortalized on the original Buddy Holly single.

I’m amazed that anyone is ever amazed that this band has become one of the most successful bands of my generation. Just listen to this. It’s a perfect song performed by a young band that was riding its first wave of success… and you can hear it in every note.

Weezer - “In the Garage” (Live; MTV All Access; 2001)

Speaking of 1994.

First off: killer guitar tone, Rivers.

Second, my daughter really likes the part where he mentions Kitty Pryde and Nightcrawler. Because she is awesome.

Third? I really miss this Weezer just so much.


[Thanks for the date correction, decodedfromspace and Waxy. I wondered why RC had short hair and Matt wasn’t there.]

Funny thing about that tone… it came from a Line 6 POD. No amps or cabinets were used on the Hooptie tour. In fact, you could dial-in nearly that exact tone if you wanted to by referencing Karl’s incredible Equipment History page. I studied the content of those frames more than most of my Music Ed coursework back at the turn of the century. It was time well spent.

Just in case any of you were wondering, I’m of the opinion that Maladroit is the best post-pinkerton weezer album, particularly because it’s the last on which the band rocks without reserve.
Sadly, Pat Wilson’s balls have been missing since the recording of this album; rumor has it they were eaten by Rivers’ ego sometime in 2002. Thankfully they were able to showcase themselves with such grand fervor on these 13 songs before vanishing.

Speaking of huge choruses… goddamn.

This song gets a bad rap for its lyrical content, but it’s really one of their best songs since the ’90s. I don’t know if that means the song is great or that their recent catalog is not-so-great - probably a bit of both.
