Wisconsin-born brother duo French Horn Rebellion deconstruct Weezer song, suggested by Amelinda

 

Citing a story in which the young brothers saw Weezer open for No Doubt at Summerfest, the decision was an easy one to cover “Buddy Holly” and their version is radically difference from the original. And in a tip of the Milwaukee cap the video for “Buddy Holly” (Weezer’s version) the clip uses ‘Happy Days’ characters and is set at “Al’s Diner” from ‘Happy Days’ (set in MKE).

The Weezer original “Buddy Holly”.

And the cover is too new to have a video, yet. Send your suggestions to shadow@radiomilwaukee.org
