    from what I gathered Gener's working with kids at the "school of rock' in Woodstock NY...he lives there now. he's doing his solo thing, but also a Billy Joel tribute show that kicks ass from what I've seen. the backup band for the billy stuff are the school of rock teachers.
    excellent stuff!

    I really wish he would cut the shit and call Mickey. This Billy Joel crap is embarrassing. And when he's not doing this, he's touring with a fuckin amateur band that butchers every Ween song they play.

    Meanwhile, Mickey is doing shows as Ween Minus with the rest of the band, and just bought a van so he can tour more frequently.

    ...yes, I'm still bitter.

    The best thing Aaron has done since he left is GodBoner at Summercamp with Umphrey's. But if he's gonna play Ween songs with a kick ass band, why not do it with HIS band? Do those guys not get fucked up? Was everyone there not on drugs?

    He needs to get over this cry baby shit. Nobody wants to see him cover Billy Joel. Nobody wanted to see him cover Rod McKuen. Nobody wants to see his fuckin cover band screw up So Long Jerry either.

    What pisses me off more than anything is he killed Gene Ween. Now he's resurrecting him because FREEMAN doesn't pay the bills.

    He sticks his foot in his mouth and seems really unlikable during every interview he does.

    AND he made Mickey promise not to release anymore demos after he put out caeser.

    What an asshole.

    I saw him solo after the last Ween tour and he wasn't sober then either. He's butthurt with Mickey over something that only he seems to understand.

    If he doesn't wanna play with Ween anymore, that's cool. I get it. But he should stop playing their songs if that's how he feels. Start doing Aaron Freeman does Billy Joel shows and see what that gets him. Just one more cancelled tour.

    Ween was killed, Oderus died, and Buckethead stopped touring. Its like I have nothing to look forward to anymore. :(

    i'd like to know what the rift is, it's not just drugs obviously. i saw gener 3 times since the breakup, twice he was definitely fucked up. looks like he cleaned himself up.

    I'm just guessing, but I think he feels betrayed by Mickey. Like he abandoned him when he needed him the most (think Vancouver), then when Aaron was trying to clean his shit up, Mickey was still drinking and whatnot. I think he took it as an insult.

    Apparently they haven't been "friends" for a long time. Like since White Pepper. But I know Mickey loves him, and I'd say any rift was caused by a mind effected by drugs and alcohol, not grounded in reality.

    I think they'll get back together, it just won't be soon enough for me. I don't even care if they play together anymore, I'd be just as happy to see a picture of them hugging.

    I'm glad Papa is healthy and happy, I just wish he didn't have to piss on his fans to achieve said happiness.
