Weezer offer chance to write song with Rivers Cuomo
Fans of Weezer have been given the chance to write a song with the band's lead singer and electric guitar player Rivers Cuomo in a new competition.
Musicians are being asked to come up with a remixed version of the group's song Love is the Answer.
The new versions will then be put to a public vote over the internet, with the ten most popular being featured on Weezer's website and their MySpace page.
Rivers Cuomo will then write a new song with whoever has come up with the winning remix.
Pat Wilson, the man behind the drum kit in the band, said: "Hopefully we will get versions of the song in other languages, and in a bunch of different musical styles.
"It would be great if people got inspired to try new things and are really creative."
Earlier this week, Weezer were confirmed for the Bonaroo festival in the US, along with other acts such as Kings of Leon, Stevie Wonder and Jay-Z.Posted on 11 Feb 2010 14:11 to category : Band / Celebrity News
