Inside Weezer's Exhilarating 'Rolling Stone' Set

Watch video of the band's performance at the 'Rolling Stone' Rock Star Weekend in Las Vegas, and the ride with Rivers Cuomo in his limo

October 2, 2010 1:40 PM ET

 

In addition to standbys like “Troublemaker” and “Surf Wax America,” Weezer’s high-energy set at the Mirage Las Vegas on Friday night included a few fun diversions — like, for example, Rivers Cuomo covering Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance” while wearing a wig. After the show, we rode with Cuomo and bassist Scott Shriner, and asked the Weezer frontman just what exactly he thought of the Vegas crowd, who he’d just demanded identify themselves: “Are you guys rock stars? Are you Rolling Stone journalists? Are you Weezer fans? Are you gamblers? Are you partiers?”

“I Was Made to Love Her”

Stevie Wonder | 1967

Stevie Wonder discovered true love while still a teenager, writing this ode to young love when he was only 17. The song, Wonder explained, "kind of speaks of my first love, to a girl named Angie, who was a very beautiful woman. She's married now. Actually, she was my third girlfriend but my first love. I used to call Angie up and we would talk and say, 'I love you, I love you,' and we'd talk and we'd both go to sleep on the phone.” The Beach Boys, Chaka Khan, Whitney Houston and Boyz II Men have all recorded versions of "I Was Made to Love Her."
