Well hello everyone. It's good to be here on the new forum, charting the course and paving the way.

Dave Grohl was better in QOTSA. I love most Foo stuff though. Everlong is a very fine song indeed.

Ha, I remember my first crowd surf at a Weezer gig, at a tiny Leeds town and country club, they were supporting the mighty Cast. Heady days.

I forgot to mention this over the weekend. I think the Foos were supposed to be presenting shows on BBC 6 today.I can't check at work, but you may find an interview if you check out the "listen again" options

Don't go expecting anymore Weezer shows for the time being...

Say it ain't so!.

Looks like the "half-Japanese" girl thing was true tho'.

Personally, I'm an atheist in the voting booth and a theist in the movie theatre. I separate the morality of religion with the spirituality and solace of it. There is something boring about atheism.

They'll be back, but probably not for at least a few years. I'm glad I saw them twice last year, including the Foozer tour which was awesome.

You know, I love living down here in New Zealand... but god damn we do miss out on concert goodness.

And usually when bands do come down here, they only go to Auckland.

Oh well.
