So sad.

Weezer's old bassist from the late nineties and the early 2000's has passed away. He was only 40 years old.

According to Chicago police, Welsh was found unresponsive on the floor of his room at the Rafaello hotel after failing to check out on time.

We are so sorry for everybody close to him, the loss must be so heavy.

Looks like someone decided to return the favor! How nice!

After Weezer covered Foster the People's Pumped Up Kicked at an Orange County show earlier in the month, the latter band in turn performed a frankly FANTASTIC version of the former's classic track, Say It Ain't So, at the 2011 Outside Lands Festival!

Ch-ch-check it out (above)!

So RAD! And again - such an awesome gesture, on both of their parts!

Adorbs!

Jorge Garcia is thrilled that Weezer decided to use his friendly face as the cover of their new album Hurley in homage to his character on Lost!

"How awesome is that! It totally put a smile on my face, to say the least," says Jorge. "It ranks right up there with getting my own action figure."

So how did this deal go down? Well Jorge met lead singer Rivers Cuomo backstage at The George Lopez Show and asked if he could take a picture with him. Jorge adds:

“And then two months later I get an email from my manager saying, ‘Listen, Weezer contacted us and they want you to be on the cover of their new CD…I thought that was really cool.”

It is cool…and different!

Hurley comes out on September 15 — will U be checking it out?

First Look! The Cover Art For Weezer's New Album, Hurley

Filed under: Weezer

No, Losties, your eyes are note decieving you. What you are looking at is the actual cover art for Weezer's next album:

A big ole picture of Jorge Garcia aka Hurley from Lost!

Yeah, we're not so much getting it either, but we'll roll with it for now. Apparently, it will make sense once we've heard the album.

Rivers Cuomo explained to New York Magazine why this particular pictures was chosen for the cover. He said:

"I just loved this photo of Jorge Garcia — it just had this amazing vibe. We didn't want to do a fourth self-titled record and we knew people would refer to it as 'the Hurley record' even if left it without that title, so we just called it 'Hurley.' No words are on the cover because all we wanted was his amazing face."

Wow. Um, okay. His amazing face it is then. Certainly it's a risk, something different.

Course, no matter what this Hurley business is, it'll never be as good as Buddy Holly, so….
