Get well soon, Rivers!!

Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo released from hospital
Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo has been released from a New York State hospital, where he had been hospitalized since the tour bus he was riding in crashed earlier this month.
According to Weezer’s longtime webmaster, Karl Koch, Cuomo–who suffered three broken ribs in the crash, along with a small cut on his spleen and puncture in one lung–was given the go-ahead to check himself out of the Albany, NY, hospital , where he planned to depart Saturday (12/12) on yet another bus for the long trip back to his home in Los Angeles. Cuomo’s lung injury prevents him from traveling via airplane while he recovers, according to Koch.
“We’re taking a warmer southerly route to avoid bad weather, and Rivers will be using a cozy lower bunk for sleeping,” Koch wrote Friday on the band’s website. “None of that back lounge bedroom stuff for him!”
Cuomo was injured Dec. 6 when the tour bus carrying the singer, his family and his assistant, Sarah Kim, hit a patch of black ice about 40 miles west of Albany, NY, and careened off of Interstate 90, according to the band. Kim fractured two ribs and sustained back injuries, and is expected to need 3-4 weeks to recover.
“We all wish her the speediest of healing. She’s a very tough girl, we know she can do it,” Koch wrote on the site. Cuomo’s wife and baby daughter, who were also on the bus at the time of the crash, were unharmed.
The band’s remaining shows this month were canceled in the wake of the accident, with no makeup dates currently set. Ticket-holders should check the band’s website for additional information regarding refunds.
“Raditude,” Weezer’s seventh studio album, surfaced last month. The set boasts a slew of co-production credits, including Jacknife Lee (U2, R.E.M.) and Butch Walker (Saosin, Katy Perry), as well as Cuomo.
The album’s first single, “(If You’re Wondering If I Want You To) I Want You To,” hit radio waves in August, debuting at No. 21 on both the Billboard Rock Songs and Alternative Songs charts, eventually peaking at No. 2 on the latter.
