Here are a few things that you might not know about Weezer.
- Rivers Cuomo is called “Rivers” because he was born in a New York Hospital which allegedly afforded his mom views of both rivers. He has a brother named Leaves, by the way. Mom and Dad were hippy-types.
- Rivers loves metal. In fact, one of his very first bands was a prog-metal outfit called Avant Garde.
- Weezer was formed as the result of a merger between what Rivers was doing and a group called 60 Wrong Sausages.
- Rivers took a little time off to go back to school. He went to Harvard to study music. He graduated with honours, too.
