Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo Discusses Incubus Fan Mail + ‘Long Rocker Hair’

Rivers Cuomo of Weezer likes getting fan mail, but not when it’s meant for someone else. In a recent visit on Larry King’s web series, King asked Cuomo if he’d had any crazy fan encounters, and he told an interesting tale about fan mail. “It’s happened twice that I’ve gotten packages at my house, only, my address isn’t listed or anything,” he told King. “I get these elaborate packages, only they’re not for me, they’re for the singer of Incubus, Brandon Boyd. The bizarre thing is it’s happened at two different houses I’ve lived in over the years.” Check out the conversation in the video above.

Cuomo also spoke of his days sporting “long rocker hair.” Not that it’s a secret, but the Weezer main man was once in a hair metal band called Avant Garde in the late ’80s. Going under the name Peter Kitts, he and the band recorded a handful of demos before changing their name to Zoom. “In the 1980s, when I was a teenager, I really loved it and I thought I was so awesome,” he said of the big hair era. “For years I was horrified by my long haired past, and hoping that it never was exposed, but now, looking back on it, I think it’s pretty awesome again!” You can check out clips from the back-and-forth between King and Cuomo below:
