If you have: Is it just me, or does their singer's voice sound a lot like Rivers in some of their songs?

They both have acted.  Rooney brother was in Princess Diaries and Phantom Planet brother was in Donnie Darko.

 

I don't know much else they've done in the acting world.

I am picking up on what you are saying, and I've noticed that ever since I first heard Rooney.

 

They are big fans of weezer (Brian Bell was on the lead singers podcast).  They've covered weezer live, and the lead singers older brother, lead singer of Phantom Planet is also a big weezer fan.  Imitation is the highest form of flattery.

haha, probably not. 

 

They just put out a new album (which is decent) and have been performing on late night TV shows.  Lopez Tonight isn't a major thing for a band that had much success earlier in this decade, but I like that they are still around.

His older brother was the DRUMMER for Phantom Planet, not the lead singer. Jason Schwartzman makes some fine music under his pseudonym, Coconut Records.


I stand corrected, thank you.

Robert Schwartzman (Rooney frontman) is about to tour with The Relationship (Brian Bell) on the West Coast (lucky buggars!!! Though I will see Rob @SXSW Yay!) Rob's brother Jason also named his daughter after Rivers (it's her middle name). If you love Weezer, def check out at the very least, Rooney's 1st record. When i 1st heard it 10yrs ago i called them "baby Weezer" ;-) i love Rooney & all their side projects (Rob's solo record "Double Capricorn is 100% profits to the Tibetan Healing fund, Taylor Locke & The Roughs are badass rockers too). I would LOVE if they toured again.
