front man from weezer, I heard this guy can really shred, I love weezer, and though I'm not a huge fan of shredding I was wondering if they're are any videos of him soloing or shredding or however you want to put it, I wanna see it to believe it.

He can.

In his younger days growing up he was into thrash and speed metal or other bands like Iron Maiden etc. I don't know what happened after that though! Watch the Weezer DVD if you want to see it.

Didn't he go to that guitar institute in LA or somewhere similar? I'm sure I read that somewhere.

He was in a progressive metal band in the late 80's. He in the other guitarist met at a GIT camp, and stayed up late at night writing "elaborate counterpoint solos".




NOTE:Most of that came from a book.

Yeah, I've heard about this. He does unleash some pretty good solos on Weezer songs, especially Dope Nose.

Yeah, he takes all the solo's in Weezer songs. It makes me feel sorry for the other guitarist who's just stuck with the boring old riffs.

Yes, he did go to GIT. I went there for a tour and the guy was telling me about it.

He does have some pretty impressive chops, but it seems like he prefers to hold back.
