My new theory is that Ween were/are basically the spiritual and sonic children of Joe Walsh. He's incredibly talented, influenced by a slew of different musical styles (including reggae, like Ween are: check out "Life's Been Good" and tell me the verses aren't built on reggae), he loves playing the clown, yet can dive full-on into the extreme side of rockism and revel in it. Much of his early career was created in the constant haze of drugs and alcohol. He wrote a vulgar, sexist song called "I.L.B.T.'s", Ween did "L.M.L.Y.P.". Ween, during their prime in 1992, used to cover Walsh's hit, "Rocky Mountain Way", live. He eventually got sober. Ween eventually got sober. Listen to Walsh's "The Confessor" and tell me that you can't imagine it being Ween at their most bombastic, rock-serious (but for some dated, pre-Ween production flourishes). Joe Walsh doesn't really care what anyone thinks of him, nor did Ween. Check this out:

C'mon. It's true. They should form a Joe Walsh & Ween supergroup.

a truly eclectic collection of styles, but almost always played with great musicianship, ween are truly one of those bands where you don't know what their next release could sound like, for me theres always one or two tracks i hear and wonder why they bothered but this is more than made up by the tracks that truly move me and make the hairs on my neck stand on end
