Yeah. I’ve never worried about being cool—that’s why Ween’s always worn T-shirts and jeans. I’ve never tried to dress up. I mean, there’s a lot of cool kids out there making cool music, and I think as you get older, you just change. It’s the process of life. You’re just not as hip as you were, and it’s always bothered me when I see aging rock stars who don’t embrace that fully and try to be young and hip. You see some wrinkled-up old rocker with tattoos all over him; he’s not fooling anybody, you know, he’s like an old fart. When I’m an old fart, I want to really embrace it. To me, that’s punk rock, and it’s all about punk rock in the end. [Laughs.] I started with punk rock, and I want to end with punk rock.
Aaron “Gene Ween” Freeman really does not need to worry about being cool.
