Ween, one of rock's more offbeat and longstanding bands, is no more. Not having dropped an album since 2007's La Cucaracha, Aaron Freeman--otherwise known as Gene Ween--recently toldRolling Stone that it's simply time to stop. "It’s been a long time, 25 years. It was a good run," going on to say that, for him at least, the decision is "a closed book. In life sometimes, in the universe, you have to close some doors to have others open."
The split seems amicable enough, and Freeman will continue to put out music as a solo artist. At the moment there is no word from Michael Melchiondo (Dean Ween), the co-founder of the New Hope, Penn. act. Below, watch Ween perform "Piss Up a Rope." [SG]
