an acoustic album or ep would be amazing!
great idea. i'd love an unplugged style thing, or like the foo, a skin and bones kinda thing.
or even a vh1 storytellers like the foo did last year would be sweet
i think a tour would be good
then bang it on to CD!!
I always hated the MTV unplugged things because they usually trundled out the band of the month and made them play acoustic (and because Edward VanHalen =VH=!!!! called it "the flavor of the month"). However, the storytellers thing is really great because you get to see the people behind the music and fit the pieces together a bit more. And, you can appreciate their artistry and talent more when you can see/hear them doing things in the moment.
It would be especially neat if Rivers were to take a sound bite and show how he uses software to mesh various sounds into a cohesive piece, then loop it and play acoustic over it.
I'd like to see if Pat could do some acoustic drumming on a guitar too. That would be dee oh pee eee, dope.
I think Weezer is at a point in their career where they can do WHATEVER they want. Maybe they'll see this thread and jump on it.
The closest thing they've done to an "acoustic" release were the Hootenanny events, and then all those acoustic radio shows they did in support of Pinkerton.
As much as I hated "In Your Honour", I liked the "Skin and Bones" idea the Foo Fighters did. They re-arranged some songs, and made it a real orchestral event. That'd be cool to see =w= do that.
