Aaron Freeman

In late May, Ween’s Aaron Freeman (Gene Ween) told Rolling Stone that the band was breaking up; “It’s been a long time, 25 years,” Freeman said. “It was a good run.” Since then, we’ve been awaiting an official statement from Freeman or the band, and yesterday we got it. Via that statement:

I want to thank each and every one of you for all of your kind words and support,” he writes. “It means a lot. My decision to leave Ween, however interpreted, was absolutely not made in haste. It’s evolved over a decade’s worth of internal and external struggle. Know that I am extremely proud of all that is Ween. And while Mickey and I are going our separate ways, I wish him only the best. I will always have nothing but love and respect for what we created together. I need to now move on for myself and for my family. I still, as always, look forward to a future filled with music as Aaron Freeman.

Still no word from Mickey Melchiondo, but we’ll update you when the Deaner speaks.

  1. I’m sad to see Ween call it a day, but I’m glad Aaron is doing what’s best for his health. It sound like the 00′s were a really bumpy ride for him.

  2. Has anyone gotten a comment from the Boognish?
