    Weezer Biography

    Weezer is ready to reclaim the world with their new album, Make Believe. Overtaking an entire planet is hard work, but luckily ARTISTdirect was able to snag a few minutes with Weezer’s drummer and backbone, Pat Wilson.

    We played “Either/Or” with him and even convinced him to tell us what he’d order at Wendy’s!
