In the studio with Weezer: Bandmates debate Bob Seger vs. BTO

About a month ago, I spent a few days in the studio with Weezer as they put the finishing touches on their new album, Everything Will Be Alright in the End. Despite the fact that this is their ninth proper studio album, the process of making records hasn’t gotten any easier. “Making records is weird,” drummer Pat Wilson said after a particularly intense session. “It’s different every time.”

Seger opened the show with a spirited version of his 1973 classic, “Turn the Page.” He was then inducted by Valerie Simpson who performed “We’ve Got Tonight” in his honor. On the red carpet before the performance, Simpson said that steamy track has a very special power. “It’s one of the sexiest songs I know, it put more people in bed than I can imagine,” Simpson said.
