The Special Podness: Atom, Elvis and Jay Leno

Welcome to the Special Pod-ness, a four-part mini-series dedicated to the history of The Special Goodness by the three dudes who (probably) know it best: Pat Wilson of Weezer, drummer Atom Willard (Rocket From the Crypt, Plosivs, Against Me!) and Karl Koch, Weezer historian. 

As we celebrate the brand new red-colored vinyl edition of the band’s third album, Land Air Sea, Pat, Atom, and Karl take us back to the ‘90s and early 2000s to share stories about the ins and outs of the music industry, run-ins with other bands and musicians, and the making of the record. This episode focuses on the MTV Music Awards, Atom Willard meeting the Weezer/Special Goodness crew, and that time Jay Leno ended up knocking on Pat’s door—and by the way, Elvis is involved.
