– What’s up, I’m Pete from Fall Out Boy. – Rivers from Weezer. – Billie Joe from Green Day. – And we’re about to
go Fishing For Answers. (relaxed music) Billie and Rivers, describe
the first time you met Pete. – I met you at the MTV Music Awards? In 2004. – Maybe. Maybe, yeah, maybe.
– Yes. – That was it. Describe. That’s a good yeah, we said hello. It was cordial. – I think I met you in 2014 at a show in Florida or something. Does that sound right? – Yeah, that’s right. – And we showed up, and
we in Weezer realized we were opening for you in Fall Out Boy and we were like, “Wow, all right.” (laughs) So, it’s like okay, we
needed a new manager. Tell us about your manager, okay? (laughs) – Yeah, that’s right. – Here we are. – What’s changed the most
from recording new music today verses when you first started out? – I’d say the speed. It goes a lot faster now. You don’t watch the wheels go running around, and round, and round, anymore, so. I mean, you can do that, but yeah. The speed, that’s the
one thing I’ve noticed. – Yeah and like the pretty
much infinite tracks so like you can just keep trying
a zillion different ideas. Sometimes it’s hard to pick. Back in the day it was
like you got 24 tracks. That means by the time
you get all the drums and bass, basic guitars done, there’s only a few tracks left. You kinda have to figure out exactly what you want to do before you record it on the last few remaining tracks. – Describe the first time you met Rivers. Pete, Billie, and Pete. So go, well, go ahead. – I met Rivers in a trailer in 2014 and I was like, “Well,
fuck, I can’t believe “Weezer’s opening up for us.” (they laugh) No, I’m just kidding. (laughs) No it wasn’t, actually, I met you on the set of this
commercial, TV commercial that we shot.
– Oh, how could I forget? – Yeah, for Band Hero. – In our underwear. – In our underwear. – With Taylor Swift. – With Taylor Swift. (laughs) – That’s interesting. – It’s definitely, you can
definitely see it online. (laughs) But you were knitting a blanket. That’s what my takeaway from that was. – I remember that, knitting. – You were knitting, yeah, yeah. – I was into knitting. – Yeah! – Good time. – I met Rivers in 1994 at
a show that we were playing in Seattle, at a radio show. It was us, and Hole,
and Weezer, and Rancid and we were, I think we
met back at a bar called Linda’s or something. We were hanging out and I was I was telling you that I admire your band. Yeah. – If you weren’t a musician,
what would you be doing? – I don’t know. My father was a trucker. My brother is a plumber. And my other brother’s a janitor. So, probably like an
accountant or something. (laughs) – I think I’d be an English professor. – A barista probably,
or something, honestly. – Sweet.
– Yeah. What was your backup band name? – I was in another band
with Pat, Weezer’s drummer. We were called 60 Wrong Sausages. – Any dream collaborations left? I’m done.
– This is it, baby. This is the one! (laughs) You’re seeing it right now. Living the dream. (relaxed music)
