About Gene Ween

  • Aaron Freeman (born March 17, 1970) better known by his stage name Gene Ween, is an American musician and a founding member of the experimental alternative rock group Ween.
  • Freeman, along with childhood friend Dean Ween (Mickey Melchiondo), started the group in the mid-1980s.
  • Freeman announced his departure from Ween in 2012, shortly after releasing Marvelous Clouds, his first solo album.
  • After leaving Ween, he stopped using the name Gene Ween and performed under his birth name Aaron Freeman.
  • In 2014 he formed a new five-piece band called Freeman. In 2015, Aaron brought back the Gene Ween name for his "Gene Ween Does Billy Joel" concerts, saying it was a positive thing:At the end of the day, people know Gene Ween.
  • It’s not anything I should be ashamed of...I was really having an identity crisis and that happens – just what you said – so it’s important to separate those things.
  • You get lost in who you are.
  • As I grow and get more confident in who I am and my sobriety it's like, 'Oh yeah, Gene Ween.' It’s a positive thing and it represents the work I did since I was 16. In November 2015, Ween announced a February 2016 reunion for three shows in Colorado, with later dates subsequently announced.
