I realize I'm probably the only guy on this forum who listens to Ween but in case anyone else is interested, their singer (Aaron Freeman/Gene Ween/half of Ween) had some pretty big breakdowns recently due to alcoholism and drug addiction, and decided to quit the band and sort of retire his Ween persona to get away from that lifestyle. He announced it randomly in an interview and surprised even the guys in the band a while back.
Anyway, he recorded an EP of some ideas that could have been on a new album as sort of an official goodbye/closure. The songs aren't bad, but aren't amazing - you can really tell he recorded and produced it on his own. It was weird knowing I'm hearing his Gene Ween voices for the last time, and the last song is actually pretty sad, and I do dig that song a lot. It's a bummer knowing I'm probably never going to hear new Ween songs or see them live again.
Well hopefully he can straighten his shit out and get back into it at some point. I'm certainly not a huge Ween fan but I really dig some of their output.
