In 1994, he said: "My name is Rivers Cuomo. I'm 23 and I sing and play guitar in Weezer..." "I grew up in various little farm towns in upstate Connecticut, completely sheltered from anything remotely "cool." At 18, I freaked out and moved to Los Angeles to become a rock star. I soon realized that I was an idiot and gave up. At the same time, my girlfriend broke up with me. I was really sad and started to write songs. Most of them sucked, but it became a habit that stuck with me. Because I'm so terrible at expressing my feelings directly, and because no one really cares, and because anything real is impossible to talk about, I've come to rely on music more and more to express myself."
In 2001: After many big ups and downs, Rivers had locked into a massively productive and busy schedule, both in music and band business. Constantly pushing himself to write new material, and record it at the best quality available at the time, he rarely had much time to spare. He has taken over management of Weezer and is doing a fine job, which has loosened and limbered him up in the music department.
