Rivers Cuomo has confirmed preliminary plans for a special tour in which Weezer will not only play all of Pinkerton , the cult 1996 album being reissued on October 5th, but the band's self-titled debut LP, known as "The Blue Album," as well.

"We're just running it by promoters right now to see if there's sufficient interest in the markets to do something like that," Cuomo told MTV. "And if they're on board, it's gonna happen." This seems likely. "The fan response has been incredible so far," Cuomo pointed out. "And, if they want to, [fans] can contact their local promoter and tell them to make it happen." Weezer will also release their new album Hurley on September 14th.

“Hungry Like the Wolf”

Duran Duran | 1982

This indulgent New Romantic group generated their first U.S. hit with the help of what was at the time new technology. "Simon [Le Bon] and I, I think, had been out the night before and had this terrible hangover," said keyboardist Nick Rhodes. "For some reason we were feeling guilty about it and decided to go and do some work." Rhodes started playing with his Jupiter-8 synth, and then "Simon had an idea for a lyric, and by lunchtime when everyone else turned up, we pretty much had the song." The Simmons drumbeat was equally important to the sound of "Hungry Like the Wolf," as Duran Duran drummer Roger Taylor stated it "kind of defined the drum sound for the Eighties."
