Watch Weezer Drummer Pat Wilson's Mid-Song Frisbee Catch
The epic nab took place on the band's recent Florida gig

If Weezer drummer Pat Wilson hadn't already earned your respect with his face-melting kick drum blast in "Tired of Sex," he's delivered further proof of his greatness – an epic, mid-song frisbee catch.

Top 50 Tweeters in Music: Weezer's Patrick Wilson

The glorious stage moment happened on June 6th during the band's gig in St. Augustine, Florida. As the alt-rock mainstays riffed their way through the 2005 hit "Beverly Hills," a fan tossed the frisbee onstage – directly toward Wilson's head. No sweat for the drummer, who makes a crafty nab, drums one-handed for a few seconds and places the yellow flying disc in his teeth to a score of crowd roars.

Frontman Rivers Cuomo wasn't able to witness the catch in real-time, but he did acknowledge his bandmate's limber grab after the fact, re-tweeting a fan's crowd-shot Instagram clip. "One more reason @patrick_wilson is my favorite drummer in the world :)," he wrote. Later on, the band celebrated the catch once more by posting a drum cam video of the nab on Facebook.

Weezer's last album of original material, Hurley, was released in 2010, but the quartet have recently been recording a new LP with the Cars' Ric Ocasek (who produced both 1994's Blue Album and 2001's Green Album). Back in February, the band debuted a new song, "Back to the Shack," on their Weezer Cruise; that track even name-checked Cuomo's frisbee-catching friend. In March, the group began previewing the new LP with a series of cryptic in-studio teasers, the first of which featured snippets of what seems to be new music.

The band will be celebrating their breakout Blue Album this September with a full LP performance at the Chicago edition of the 2014 Riot Fest.
