About Gene Ween
The musical moniker of established musician Aaron Freeman, Gene Ween's roots begin with the Aaron Freeman/Mickey Melchiondo collaboration known simply as Ween. Two childhood friends who shared a love for music and a deep friendship, Ween began as an independent rock band that released a series of mixtapes over the years, including Mrs. Slack, Erica Peterson's Flaming Crib Death, and Prime 5. The band would pick up a recording contract from major label Twin/Tone, with exec Dave Ayers signing on to become the band's manager. The new record deal and fresh management would set the stage for Ween to dominate the 90s music decade, with their big label debut GodWeenSata: The Oneness appealing to fans nationwide. Their second full length, The Pod, would be another huge hit for the band, with the band deciding in 1992 to move to Elektra Records for their third major release. The band spent the remaining ten years dominating the modern rock and entertainment scene, with their work appearing in cult classic comedies Dude, Where's My Car? and Road Trip, as well as the band performing on major late night institution Conan O'Brien. The band's output would slow down as they moved into the 00s, allowing its various members plenty of time to pursue side projects - which eventually birthed Aaron's side project Gene Ween.
Ween's solo career spanned three albums and multiple decades, kicking off with 1987's Synthetic Socks, moving on to 2012's Marvelous Clouds, and most recently featuring Gener's Gone: The Final Demo Recordings of Gene Ween in 2013. He would also decide to launch his own band, titled Freeman, that became one of his main music projects since its inception in 2014. On top of those projects, Gene Ween has also taken to the road to promote Gene Ween does Billy Joel, his own special Billy Joel tribute band that features fellow talented performers Paul Green and Dan Hickey. With decades of musical experience and a non stop stream of hits being released in his name, the Gene Ween music phenomenon is showing no signs of slowing down as he moves into his fourth decade of pure musical excellence.
One of his most recent collaborative releases is 2007's La Cucaracha, the tenth and final piece of discography released by Ween. The album dropped on Rounder Records and was produced by the visionary Andrew Weiss, with the album receiving widespread critical acclaim that included a favorable review from Billboard, four stars from AllMusic, and a coveted perfect five out of five stars from Time Off. The album would hit #69 on the US Billboard 200 charts, and featured the hit tracks "Fiesta", "Lullaby", "Woman and Man", "Spirit Walker", "Object", and "My Own Bare Hands".
Part of the reason that Aaron decided to sever ties with Ween was for his own personal health. Years of touring with Ween had led Aaron down a path of drug and alcohol abuse which Aaron struggled with for decades. Now sober, Aaron takes his abstention from the party life seriously, and wasn't able to remain with the band while they practiced a drugs, sex, and rock & roll lifestyle.
