    Gene Ween, born Aaron Freeman, confirmed that his experimental rock band Ween is officially broken up, kaput, no more. He told Rolling Stone, "It's time to move on. I'm retiring Gene Ween," he said. After 25 years, it's time to move the hell on, it seems.

    The split was amicable. He said, "For me it's a closed book. In life sometimes, in the universe, you have to close some doors to have others open. There's no, 'Goddamn that such and such!' For me, I'd like to think it's a door I can close finally."

    Were you a Ween fan? Does this news bum you out?
