Gene Ween Recovering from Pneumonia
As previously reported, Gene Ween recently cancelled a series of dates with his new solo band after being hospitalized with pneumonia. The singer is said to be recovering and recently published the following on Weens website:Hi Everyone….I want to thank everyone for the well wishes, I’m recovering well from this pneumonia that I believe I’d been ‘walking around’ with before it manifested itself fully a day after the last GWB show in Asbury Park. I spent four days in the hospital which, for those who know, is close to hell on earth but with good doctors, nurses and the care of my Jewish Mother for the last few days, I’ll be fine. This GWB experience was so fucking great and I do plan to make up the shows with more to come. Thanks for all the well wishes and I wish you all the best wish for the wishes at this special time of the year. Love, GW The Gene Ween Band has no currently scheduled tour dates. Weens bandmates Joe Russo, Scott Metzger and Dave Dreiwitz will perform as Bustle in Your Hedgerow at New Yorks Knitting Factory this Sunday.
