r's Tour Diaries:
I'm keeping a running diary of the ween tour but i've decided to post the whole thing at once, when each leg is finished. Right now though, I'm stuck in a hotel outside of Madison on a rainy, windy day. I tried to take a picture of this depressing cubicle that has been home for the past 24 hours, but I forgot the cable that connects the camera to the computer. This is what the tour has been like so far though, sitting in hotels out on the highway, nowhere near any shops or restaurants and in foul weather. No hotel bars even. Imagine getting dropped off at a hotel at 11am every day and watching your ride drive away. It's like "ok, just sit there in that room for the next 8 hours, but don't smoke any cigarettes or we'll charge you a $200 fee, and we'll be back to get you later for the show. If you get hungry, there's a Ruby Tuesday down the highway about a 1/4 mile". I've spent the last 4 days watching CNN, ESPN, History Channel, standing on the toilet seat blowing cigarette smoke into the ceiling vent, and being just generally anxious to get out there and play some music. Last night we got to watch the Red Sox/Indians and that was nice at least. The only problem was that the game was over at 11 local time and we're used to going to sleep at 3. So I went to sleep anyway. Now I've been up since 9am and soundcheck isn't 'til 6. FUUUUUCCCK.

Deaner's Tour D
Had a day off yesterday and I was all excited to make a night out of watching the world series on the awesome hi-def flat screen tv in the hotel bar. What a sad ass game that turned out to be. Ran into Jess Margera from CKY and we hit the town instead. Ended up in some bar singing "Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love" with a pretty rippin' heavy metal karaoke band. In my humble opinion I thought it was the best performance I've given this whole tour. Today I have a 2 inch long bloody cut on my ass and I have no idea how it got there. I think I woke up to take a leak in the middle of the night and must've tripped on something. We were supposed to be on NPR's "All Things Considered" this morning and luckily it got cancelled. I think I'm just gonna lay around in bed til showtime. I think we play at a House of Blues tonight, at least that's what someone told me last night. I honestly don't even have a copy of our schedule and I wouldn't read it if I did. By the way, don't send me any emails through Ning, send them to the gmail address on the main page.

Deaner's Tour Diaries:
We'll we're finished our midwest tour and we have a few days off at home now. We're here only in body though, or at least I am. I sort of have one foot out the door already. All summer long I've been looking at our schedule, anticipating the few days off we have right now, figuring that's when I'd go get in on the killer fall striper run. Well I was down the beach for the last couple days and it was just as dead (and as warm) as when we left. The bass haven't started their run yet. I'll check back with them around thanksgiving I guess. I did catch the usual suspects, bluefish, croakers, sharks, and skates. I'm going to post our tour diary to later on today. Aaron and I have a photo shoot with Spin today at 4.....whatever.

Tour Diaries:
We have a flight to Tuscon this afternoon. Our little break is over. I decided not to post our tour diary from the first leg of the tour, even though it was long and detailed. There was a lot of negative shit in there and sometimes it's just better to not say anything at all. I will say this though, if you are at a Ween show and you see anyone throw anything at us that's heavier than a cotton ball, grab a secuity guard, or beat their ass on the spot. There was a little too much of it on the last tour for my liking. Otherwise, we had a great time, and great crowds, except for the Toronto crowd, who were undeniably, and surprisingly soft. Lookin' forward to playin' out West, a little bit more scenic than where we just were. I'll have my Brownie Troop 666 stickers on Tuesday and I figured out a way to get them to you guys. I'll be posting more about this once I have the stickers in my hands.

Alright, I just woke up in Tuscon after having a wicked dream. I'm a huge sports fan and I watch just about everything on t.v. except most college sports and all women's sports. But I might have to change that. I had this dream that I was following Natalie Gulbis around during an LPGA event and she hooked her tee shot into the woods near where I was standing. So when she came strolling down the fairway I told her I had a pretty good idea where the ball went out of play and I would help her find it. For some reason her caddy wasn't with her, nor were any rules officials. You know where this is headed. I fucked her in the woods. You know you don't have don't read this shit right? Someone's blog, talking about their dreams? I wouldn't read it, but since you made it this far I'll keep going. I have this sick fascination with one (or both) of the Williams sisters--Venus and Serena. I favor one sometimes, and then I switch to the other. It's probably gonna take a therapist to help me work my way thru this. It's something about their sheer uncompromising blackness coupled with the way they scream and grunt when they hit the ball. I doubt that I stand much of chance of ever getting it happening with either of them, and I'm sure mom and pop wouldn't be too into it either. Thanks for reading my blog.

Just woke up in San Diego, played the Rialto in Tuscon last night. Tuscon was celebrating their annual "All Souls" parade, at least that's what I think it was called. It was a long parade through the streets of Tuscon where thousands of people were dressed up as skeletons, zombies, all sorts of evil shit. Sorta like a morbid mardi-gras parade. Got to watch the parade from the roof of the theater. The show was a blast for us, a nice way to start the west coast run. We also finally got to bust out "Shamemaker" in medley form. Hung out and partied around town for awhile afterwards and then drove overnight and had a restless night's bus sleep. This is where you're not sure if you slept or not cuz you wake up so often. The Eagles suck this year. It's over. Why should the Red Sox and Patriots and Celtics fans get to have so much hope when there is so little in Philadelphia? Am I bitter? Fuck yeah.

Deaner's Tour Diaries:
The past few days have been a blur. I'm still sort of foggy trying to distinguish what happened on which night. We rolled into San Diego the other day and I went out and had a good meal at the Liars Club/bar with my friend Lenny. We then spent about 5 hours hanging around the San Diego House of Blues, which is located like 4 stories underground. As far as HOBs go, I actually really liked this one. It was small, it held like 1200 people tops, and we sold it out. Really a perfect sized venue with a great view from the stage. We totally rocked the living shit outta that place I think but it's all pretty fuzzy at this point. We then drove overnight to Ventura and stayed at a beautiful hotel right on the water. This was our second time at the "Majestic" Ventura Theater. If you're ever in Ventura, there's a killer restaurant right up the street from the club that advertises itself as "Peruvian Thai food" and that's where I ate. It was so good that I wanted to stand up and start singing. There's these two old grandmothers that cook the food, one is Peruvian and one is Thai. Their daughters serve the food and they are beautiful beyond belief. There were very concerned with the quality of our meal and came out and spoke with us about it. Amazing. Anyway, the Ventura show was the one I've been waiting for since this tour began--when fatigue, frustration, and a small crowd all collide on the same night and all hell breaks loose. I can't remember exactly all of the details, but the night ended with a 40 minute medley of The Little Drummer Boy, the Little Drummer Boy pt. 2 (which we wrote on the spot), Fiesta, Third Stone From the Sun, Fiesta reprise, Superstar (the Carpenters), and some other hellish feedback jams and bad free jazz during the Mollusk. I don't know if the crowd enjoyed it as much as I did, but I reserve the right to get drunk and make a mess every now and then. Chris Harford is living out here these days so he's been with us the past couple shows. Now I'm sitting in L.A. on our day off, looking forward to getting another good meal tonight and meeting up with some friends. Oh, and Fender sent me a new guitar today that's sort of modelled after my red Stratocaster so I'm psyched to try it out at tomorrow's gig.

Tour Diaries:
Just comin' off a really hectic run through California, just got off the bus from an overnight drive from San Fran to Portland. Had a great gig at the Warfield last night, one of the best crowds of the whole tour. The Tenderloin though, (that's the section of town where the club is) that shit is just completely out of control. Ween has played the Warfield many times over the years and I've seen some fucked up shit down there, but against all odds it seems to have actually gotten worse with the crackheads and homeless people. The security guy told us that one of the other guards had his thumb bit off last week by a homeless dude. Yesterday people were openly buying, selling, and smoking crack right in front of our bus ALL DAY and IN THE RAIN. At one point yesterday a guy was taking a piss on the sidewalk facing me, not even the wall. I said to one of the guys from the club "look at the dude just pissing right there" and he replied "thank god he's just pissing, sometimes they'll just shit anywhere too." Unfortunately my favorite San Francisco restaurant, Original Joe's, just had a really bad fire and might not reopen for 6 months, if ever. I really do love San Francisco though, warts and all. It still has a pulse and I think that the homeless and the funk both play a part of it. Gonna search out a killer seafood dinner tonight and finally watch part 7 of the Ken Burns movie. Thanks to whoever the guy is who threw me that ball of hash from the front row last night. It's like the size of a golf ball.

s Tour Diaries:
The past week has been a whirlwind of gigs and travelling. Played a really fun show in Portland, small venue but really intimate and rocking. Had a lot of fun in that town. Drove overnight to Seattle and played a huge sold out show in another stunningly beautiful theater, we've been really fortunate on this tour to have played some gorgeous venues. Same thing the next night in Vancouver, played a huge opera house. I got kinda snakebit in Vancouver by broken strings, I don't know if I've ever broken so many strings on one gig in my life, but the crowd was super enthusiastic and no one seemed to notice but me. Did a beautiful drive thru the Canadian Rockies to get here, in Calgary. The hotel we're staying at is beautiful and I slept for 13 hours last night. There was a fashion show going on last night here in the hotel and the place was just crawling with models and scenesters. When I checked into my room there was a nice little tray of chocolates and someone had drawn "thanks dean" on it in chocolate and it had the name of our albums sorta painted on there too. I guess someone who works here is a Ween fan. Got to watch some hockey last night, and some basketball and lots of coverage on the Barry Bonds indictment. It will be very interesting to see how this all plays out. If they knew an indictment was coming why did they wait until now? I don't really like the guy at all, but the way this whole thing has been handled is a catastrophe. It's gonna be very interesting to see who else's names come up out of all this and how they're gonna deal with that. Bud Selig is an ass, maybe the worst commisioner in all of sports. Just 2 more gigs for us and then we fly home for a way too short break before the east coast tour. Striped bass are now being caught down on LBI and hopefully the weather and the tides will cooperate with me one day next week.

Christ almighty. We got home at 2am last night from Canada. The trip home home was a hellride in every sense of the word. Canada was great, the fans in Vancouver, Calgary, and Edmonton came to rock and hopefully we gave them something worthy. The club in Calgary was downright bizzare, a sports bar dedicated exclusively to the Calgary Flames. The show in Edmonton was in a mall, we'd played there once before. We get a whopping 3 days off now before we resume and I'm goin' fishing. I will hopefully report back here with a winning story.

Deaner's Tour Diaries:
Sitting in Boston, got a nice early show tonight for a change. The past couple of gigs have been really gnarly. First Burlington, which really rocked, and then last night in Northampton which was totally brown and downright bizzare. I love gigs like that. We basically played the kitchen sink for 3 hours, songs we never play, songs we don't know, etc. It was a blast, if you were there I hope you enjoyed it as much as we did, although I'm not really sure what that means. I can't win with the food situation on tour. If I see another piece of domino's pizza I'm gonna shit blood. I don't consider myself to be a food snob, but if I see food that's disgusting I will always opt to just not eat anything instead. So far my steady diet of Red Bull, Beck's and Marlboros has been working for me. I got a stack of BT666 stickers in Philly and I've been tagging pretty much everything I come in contact with. Jim Woolsey told me has mailed out a few hundred so far--they look pretty bad ass. We're travelling in a couple of all black 15 passenger vans on this tour, no tour bus. It has a great look. Everywhere we go people are totally confused by what we are--the evil fbi-looking van pulls up and they see Dan (our tour manager and den mother) who is a gigantic brother with a cell phone, walkie talkie and a bunch of credentials around his neck, then they see the rest of us tired ass looking bunch of cruds and scumbags file out of the all black truck. We look like a bunch of assasins or something.

Tour Diaries:
It's over. It's really over, at least for a month or so. Finished up the final show in NYC last night and went right from the stage to the highway, made it to John and Peter's in time for last call. I wanted to thank everyone that came out to the shows this year, we had a lot of fun out there. As soon as my mind and body start to heal i'm gonna post a more thorough tour report. For the next month I'm gonna focus on getting back to the things I've missed the most while on tour--family, fishing, cooking, getting to some flyers games, etc. And just a reminder that the Brownie Troop stickers are here and you can get one by following the instructions to the left. I'll check back here later.

Tour Overview/Vital stats:
Ween Tour 2007 was intense for me, only because it had been a long time since we have done a proper tour, and not just a little one week trip based around some festival or an outdoor gig. I forgot what it was like to play 6 nights a week for a couple of months, it has it upsides and it's downsides. The upside is purely musical, the band members become telepathic and your playing gets sharp as a razor. The downsides are obvious, fatigue, bad food, a lot of waiting around, etc. One observation I did make was that because we've sort of moved up in venues to mostly theaters now, I've really noticed the impact of playing a seated venue, which we did a lot of. I simply don't like it. It's not really right for Ween-it's bad enough that people aren't allowed to smoke in clubs anymore, it's another thing to make them stay in an assigned seat for 2 ½ hours while we stand up there and try and raise the energy level gradually (and chain smoke our lungs out). Any of the gigs that I felt were a little flat happened in the seated venues, but like I said, that's just my opinion. Some of my personal favorite shows were in Chicago, Burlington, New York, Northampton, Ventura, Montreal, Hampton Beach, San Francisco and Portland. Here are some other vital stats:

Best catered meal of the tour:

Detroit-The Fillmore

We have some vegans in our road crew and normally I don't like to eat before a gig, but the dude who cooks at the Fillmore made us the best meal I've had in a long time, restaurants included. Little things like this mean a lot on tour. Nice one dude.

Amount of times Aaron sang the words to "Mister Richard Smoker" correctly:

None. He doesn't know the words and never has. We joke about it but it sort of bothers me after playing it for the last 12 years.


Twice for me, don't know about anyone else. Once outside of Mary's in Portland right on the sidewalk and once right before we went onstage at the Tower in Philly. Yes, we still get nervous from time to time, a hometown gig will usually get my attention pretty good.

Singular most over the top onstage moment:

Claude Coleman's drum solo in Pittsburgh, PA at Mister Smalls. We carried him off the stage on our shoulders.

Aaron's best rap: Cleveland, House of Blues. The whole House of Blues thing is pretty cheesy you have to admit. They basically take some bar and make it look like an old roadhouse honky tonk. It's very phony and corporate, but in all fairness they always have great production there and the food isn't half bad. Aaron has a particular hatred for the places though and he almost never fails to mention it onstage when we play one. I forget exactly what he said onstage but it was something like, "You know people, there's a lot of mojo in the air tonight, there's a full moon outside, and hell, you factor in all the mojo that the House of Blues has to offer, and, basically that's a lot of mojo." Maybe you had to be there or something, but the sarcasm was killing
me, even by Aaron Freeman standards.

Singular lowest moment of the tour:

Madison, Wisconsin at the Orpheum. This was an amazing show and I didn't want it to end. A great crowd and a fun gig. We were coming back onstage for the encore and some idiot threw something really hard and it hit Glenn in the temple, just to the left of his eye. He had a swollen eye and was bleeding. We didn't start the encore for about ten minutes, we just stood onstage confused about what to do. I'd love to have caught the asshole who threw it at him. I dunno why we didn't just walk back offstage.

My favorite gig:

Montreal, hands down. I don't think we can do it any better. The next night in New Hampshire was almost as good, plus we got to watch the final episode of the Sopranos.

Most bizarre situation:

After the Toronto show Dave Dreiwitz and I wanted to go out, but the club was nowhere near civilization. The Docks is a massive complex and there was a whole other club upstairs and they were hosting a costume party/rave for Russian people only. The promoter of the concert managed to get Dave and I upstairs where there were like 3 thousand Russians getting down to the lamest music I've ever heard. The women were so fucking beautiful that it was almost too much to bear. We were drenched in sweat and still wearing our stage clothes and stood out like a couple of scumbags. Every time I tried to make conversation with a girl it turned into a disaster. After 45 minutes I realized that there was starting to be enormous potential for us getting our asses kicked (or killed) so we bailed out.

Most bizarre venue:

Calgary. This was the most bizarre venue I think I ever played, like ever. It was a sports bar dedicated exclusively to the Calgary Flames.

Greatest venue:

The Aragon ballroom in Chicago is the nicest venue we've ever played (except for Red Rocks, but outdoors doesn't count). I'd be lying if I told you that we don't favor one city over another, it's like, secretly every parent has that one child that they love a little more than the others. Chicago is that way for me. This date had been glaring at me from our calendar since it was first booked. I knew that the room was gigantic, and the venue was loaded with history dating back to the early '20's. Intimidating even after 17 years of touring. When we got there I was in awe of the beauty of this place, then I was told that we were sold out, 4500 advance pre-sales. The gig was stellar, and I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that the Chicago crowds are the best crowds in the world for Ween. The crowd just gave us everything and we tried our best to give it all back. I was so happy after this show that I had to celebrate by hitting the town with some friends. Chicago is still a real city, one of the last few big cities that has everything intact, from the old to the new and everyone takes some pride in it's history. We were privileged enough to see the catacombs beneath the Aragon, where Al Capone had his secret tunnels that lead to some other clubs around town. We also got to see an indescribable room 5 floors beneath the venue, an old speakeasy that had been converted into a virtual playground with a giant pipe organ (which filled the room), the original stage piano (which everyone in the world played on, from Duke Ellington on down), and multi-tiered model train tracks complete with steam and whistles circling the room. It was the most intense thing I've ever seen on tour, and that's saying something. All of this was shown to us by the legendary Jolly Roger, the production manager, who I've been friends with since the mid '90's when he was tour managing Pigface with whom I did a brief stint on guitar. Thank you to all the people at the Aragon and all of the killer fans in Chicago
for one of the most rewarding nights of our career.
