Ast 2002 seems unfinished Some interesting ANECDOTES THOUGH OBVIOUSLY DID HIS RESEARCH though Obviously did his research t wait for Rivers memoir i used to be a big ol weezer fan HUGE we re talking going on fan sites just to gossip about the latest demo with other weezer fans kind of fan so when i saw this book in a clearance section it was too tempting and i wouldn t recommend it unless ou currently are or used to be an obsessive kind of fan it gets really in depth in places that it shouldn t and then doesn t dish the dirt ou really want to know The ultimate guide to information about not only Rivers Cuomo but Weezer in general A complete history of behind the scenes up until 2004 Highly Recommended for ALL
Weezer Fans I Am A Big Oldfans I am a big old fan so it was fun to learn about the band and all of rivers weirdnesses I really did enjoy this book it was just my wariness on accuracy that held me back a little Hard to tell what is true and not true it was written without input or approval from Cuomo While Luerssen gathers an impressive amount of Information He Spends Too Much he spends too much pushing his anti Cuomo agenda He conducted a few important interviews but much of the book is uotes from other published interviews and a chronology borrowed from Cuomo s website. Ezer’s strange hiatus and subseuent re emergence in 2000 which was one of the most successful comebacks in music history Through key interviews with friends associates members of Weezer and bandmates in their solo projects Rivers’ Edge is a must own for any Weezer This book covers bios and "Very Beginnings Of Band "beginnings of the band until after the recording of their album MaladroitA lot of great and info here but like many fans and critics say it leaves ou feelings like THE book on Weezer has et to be written This mightily detailed Weezer chronicle includes everything from session track listings to specific tour dates This is a Weezer fanatic s dream The book is a detailed exegesis of the band s trek through time and space Interestingly this also works as a tale of the indie rock everyman charting a course through the unmapped regions of Popularity The Corporate Music Industry And The Group Dynamics Of the corporate music industry and the group dynamics of band Although this is an unauthorized biography it is enhanced by interviews with pre Weezer musical associates of Rivers Cuomo original Weezer guitarist Jason Cropper producer Ric Ocasek current guitarist Brian Bell and Music journalist and admitted enormous Weezer fan John D Luerssen succeeds in that he does uncovering and investigation than hagiography in this enlightening examination of Weezer unveiled It felt like twenty percent of the thing consisted of the author listing demo track titles which is as exciting as watching demo track titles dry However it s my favorite band an. Infighting power struggles membership firings and resignations lawsuits settlements non disclosure agreements oddball behavior and most importantly fabulous rock music Welcome to Weezer’s weird world steered by brainchild Rivers Cuomo perhaps the world’s most unli. D *IT S PROBABLY THE MOST EXHAUSTIVE *s probably the most exhaustive at them around for now I actually helped out with this book furnishing backstory about the early days John Luerssen is a good guy and told the story well I know that he faithfully conveyed the facts and the nuance of what I told him A long time ago nowbut great times for sure As the only Weezer bio available River s Edge The Weezer Story will suffice for the obsessive You get a basic history of the band and some interesting facts of about River s childhood and pre Weezer days It s not especially well written and without the direct cooperation of Cuomo Bell and Wilson the author was left to piece together material from other interview sources Perhaps one day an authorized bio will be released As a side note The author mistakenly believes the post Pinkerton Weezer releases to be as good if not better than the first two albums Wrong Also I probably should have stopped reading this once he started covering the Green Album because Rivers really starts to look like a complete jerk andor clueless idiot Sadly Matt Sharp doesn t seem too cool either While the Weezer story is interesting in and of itself Luerssen spends too much time on The Rentals and the side projects and without any story Kely rock star Exhaustively researched Rivers’ Edge documents the rise of the band from Cuomo’s beginnings as a failure on Hollywood’s hair metal scene to his reinvention of himself as the undeniable ruler of Weezer Luerssen uncovers what really metal scene to his reinvention of himself as the undeniable ruler of Weezer Luerssen uncovers what really during We.
