Through The Years: Ween 1987 – 2011

Yesterday was a sad day for Ween fans as Aaron Freeman announced he had retired his Gene Ween persona and therefore the band after a 25 year run. While the news wasn’t a complete surprise to anyone paying attention, except perhaps Deaner, it’s different when you see that the actual words had come out of Freeman’s mouth. In honor of Ween and their illustrious career, we’ve put together a Through The Years playlist for Ween featuring one video a year from 1987 to 2011 which shows the power of the Purveyors of Brown’s live performances.

Ween was a rare band that allowed audiences to video tape their shows, so thankfully there’s lots of choose from. Our playlist includes a clip from a talent show performance featuring Gene and Dean from 1988, the pair’s appearance on the Jane Pratt Show in 1993, a live take from MTV’s short-lived Oddvile show, festival appearances at the first Bonnaroo, the third ACL Fest, last year’s Lollapalooza and more.
