Weezer -- wheezing

I like Weezer as much as most people, and I'm especially a fan of their marvelous debut album's hits (Undone, Say It Ain't So) and hidden gems (In the Garage, Only in Dreams). But if Rivers Cuomo can't come to grips with life as a rock frontman after all these years, I can only muster so much sympathy.

NME reports on Cuomo's current Hamlet pose: "I certainly don't see (my new songs) becoming Weezer songs, and I don't really see the point of a solo career."

OK, then -- nice knowing you, enjoy your royalties, see you on a VH1 special in 10 years.
