Patrick Wilson (musician)

Patrick "Pat" George Wilson (born February 1, 1969 in Buffalo, New York) is best known as the drummer for the alt-rock band Weezer and as the frontman in The Special Goodness.

Patrick Wilson was born in Buffalo, New York on February 1, 1969, but raised in nearby Clarence. He was introduced to music very early on in his life, making his first musical purchase of Barry Manilow's 1976 album This One's for You. Shortly after his fifteenth birthday he went to his first concert, seeing Van Halen. As a result he was inspired to start taking drum lessons with friend Greg Czarnecki. By his senior year in high school at Clarence High School, Wilson and his friend Greg began teaching the instrument, eventually amassing over 30 students.

Growing tired of the local music scene, at the urge of friend Patrick Finn, Wilson at the age of 21 moved to Los Angeles. Shortly after arriving in Los Angeles, he joined the shortlived band Bush (not Gavin Rossdale's Bush) While in Bush, Wilson met future Weezer bass player Matt Sharp, with whom he developed a friendship. Eventually by the spring of 1991, Wilson started a band with Patrick Finn, Matt Sharp and later Jason Cropper called Sixty Wrong Sausages.

In January 1992, Sharp reconnected with his former bandmates; Cuomo, Wilson and Cropper, when Wilson showed him material from his and Cuomo's "50 song project." Sharp was pleased with the material and returned to Los Angeles to join the band, consisting of Rivers Cuomo, Patrick Wilson and Jason Cropper, now under the name Weezer.

In addition to his drum duties, Wilson has three song co-writing credits on Weezer songs "The World has Turned and Left Me Here," "Surf Wax America," "My Name is Jonas," and a solo writing credit on "Automatic." However, Rivers Cuomo and Pat Wilson have written far more songs collaboratively including "Lemonade" (released on Alone: The Home Recordings of Rivers Cuomo), "Lullaby For Wayne" (Released on The Blue Album Deluxe).

Wilson and Rivers Cuomo are the only two founding members of Weezer that have remained in the band.

Wilson wrote and performed lead vocals/guitars on "Automatic," on Weezer's third self-titled album. The song was remixed by LA Riots for the video game Gran Turismo 5 Prologue. Wilson also sang lead vocals on Red Album b-sides "Life's What You Make It" (a Talk Talk cover), a cover of "Love My Way" by The Psychedelic Furs and lead vocals in parts of Weezer's cover of Gary Numan's "Are 'Friends' Electric?," which he had sung live with Weezer in 2005.

On Weezer's 2008 Troublemaker tour, Wilson plays drums and sings lead vocals first on a three part lead vocal with Scott Shriner and Rivers Cuomo on "My Name is Jonas", sings lead vocals and plays lead guitar on "Automatic" and covers of Nirvana's "Sliver", Oasis's "What's the Story (Morning Glory)" and Pink Floyd's "Time" and plays drums and sings back-up vocals on "The Greatest Man That Ever Lived".

Wilson records and performs with his own band, The Special Goodness, for which he writes songs, performs vocals, and plays the majority of the instruments. The band has released several albums, and Wilson himself has made songs available on his website in the past.

Almost immediately after Weezer's initial success, Wilson played drums on The Rentals' first record Return of the Rentals but never toured with the band.

Wilson and Weezer guitarist Brian Bell collaborated on a cover of the Velvet Underground song "Heroin" for the 2006 film Factory Girl. Additionally, Wilson and Bell were given small roles in the film as John Cale and Lou Reed, respectively.

Wilson is married to Mrs. Jennifer Wilson (wed 1994) and they also have two sons, Charlie, born in 2004, and Ian Patrick Wilson in early 2008. He also participated in episode 82 of MacBreak Weekly, Leo Laporte's Weekly Mac Podcast.
