August has been a rough month. I had tickets to Hellamega, a concert with Fall Out Boy, Green Day, and Weezer. I was going with one of my best friends, my 16-year-old son, and he was gonna bring a friend.
Wanna know my Top-5 favorite (instrument) bands?
Green Day is definitely Top-10 (my younger sister bought me a CD for Christmas in the early ’90s and I was like, “oh …thanks …a band I’ve never heard of …um …OK.” . . . and then I fell in love with those British punk rockers . . . and then I learned they weren’t British).
You can see from my list, when a concert featuring THREE of my own, personal favorite bands gets cancelled, it’s very difficult emotionally.
Oh. Right. And time with my friend and son. That sucks, too.
Where was I? Oh, Rivers Cuomo (the founder and leader singer or Weezer, which you knew, and if you didn’t, you’re banned from my Blog) knows how hard it is for his fans, so all summer he’s been dropping love-letters (aka “songs”) for us Weezer-less superfans and here’s another. A song off the upcoming Bill & Ted movie soundtrack.
Enjoy. Hope it helps with whatever canceled-concert-sadness you have.
