Today in Weezer History: 1/20/2001 - On this day in 2001, continued work on the Green Album. "...recording day 24...today there was a lot of bedlam at the studio, as down the hall there was this huge Hare Krishna Yogi chanting recording session going on, produced by Rick Rubin...so between Rick's parade of unusual friends dropping by, and the Yogi master's hordes of exotically dressed chanting disciples wandering about, it was a heavy scene...Anyway, today Rivers raged through tons and tons of guitar solos and lead guitar parts, I'm not sure but I think he did them all in one day. Also Brian did a bunch more backing vocals..." -karl (writing on weezer.com). In addition, Beck's dad David Campbell came in with a string section and recorded strings on "Always".
