This isn't the first time Cuomo has recruited fans to do his job for him. Last year he composed the as-yet-unreleased track 'Turn It' after soliciting contributions via a series of videos titled 'Let's Write a Sawng.' But that collaborative process didn't offer the princely sum of around £130, suggesting a few eager Weezerites might be feeling a bit stiffed right now.
Perhaps we should cut the singer some slack. He is, after all, currently recuperating from a nasty tour bush crash which left him with a punctured lung and caused the cancellation of Weezer's US tour in support of latest effort 'Raditude'. With that in mind, and being a dab hand with GarageBand, we'd like to offer our services. We'll take your $208, Cuomo, but we want 5% production royalties and a co-songwriting credit.
