Why Does Gene Ween Party Alone?
Gene Ween hits the Black Cat tonight without Dean Ween, his music partner of the last 24 years. In my pick for the event, I paraphrased conjecture from Ween's message board as to why: "Ween fans have speculated that Dean is taking a hiatus from the band to work on his fly-fishing. Others think that Gene wanted a little time to himself."
I got in touch yesterday with Greg Frey, Ween's manager, to see if I could clear things up (and–full disclosure–to snag some tix to the Ween show), and this is what he said: "I wish I could add clarity, but I'm guessing just like everyone else!"
So much for getting the scoop of the month...
