Ween: Roses Are Free
This is a cut off Ween's 1994 album Chocolate and Cheese. Ween is without a doubt one of the weirder groups, and their sound is about as eclectic as any group in existence.
The guitarists and founding members are Mickey Melchiondo (left) and Aaron Freeman (right), known and Dean Ween and Gene Ween.
This performance of "Roses Are Free" from the 2002 Bonnaroo DVD was the song that got me into them, though I'm still leery of their stranger tunes. It's the kind of music Frank Zappa would have made if he'd ever done drugs.
Regardless, this is a tight performance. I also thoroughly enjoy the use of guitar necks as cigarette holders.
