Claim to fame :Album "Weezer (Blue Album)" (1994)
The origin of Weezer is tightly related to its frontman, Rivers Cuomo (born June 13, 1970), since he has been the initiator of this alternative band. Performing as the lead vocalist and guitarist of the band, he had gathered Patrick Wilson (born February 1, 1969) to be the drummer, Matt Sharp (born September 22, 1969) to be the bassist, and Jason Cropper (born 1970) to be the guitarist. Established on February 14, 1992 in Los Angeles, California, these four guys at that time still looked for a proper name for their band when they came to a club on Hollywood Boulevard called Raji's. Apparently there was a need for an opening act for Keanu Reeves' band, Dogstar. Cuomo and his band mates were offered by the club to perform at that night. After debating on naming the band, Rivers suggested to call the band “Weezer.” Since the other members could not find something else that sounded more distinctive, they all agreed to apply “Weezer” as the name of the band. The performance at Raji's then became their first show which marked their initial music career.
