ArtistDirect.com interview with Pat Wilson - May 2005
Weezer is ready to reclaim the world with their new album, "Make Believe." Overtaking an entire planet is hard work, but luckily ARTISTdirect was able to snag a few minutes with Weezer’s drummer and backbone, Pat Wilson.
We played "Either/Or" with him and even convinced him to tell us what he’d order at Wendy's!
