Mang's Best Friend

After 22 years, Ween is still keepin' it brown.

"If I was fighting, I'd fuckin' have Slayer on my headphones," he adds. "That's gotta be some of the best music to get your blood going."

The same could be said for Melchiondo's scorching side project, Moistboyz, which plans to release its first DVD next summer. Tucked away from the noise, however, Melchiondo doesn't consider the Brothers Ween to be particularly famous — especially in a quiet, bed-and-breakfast burg like New Hope.

These men may or may not shoot LSD into their eyeballs: Ween's Aaron Freeman (left) and Mickey Melchiondo.

"We've been here so long, I think that people know my father as the guy who owns the car lot and not as the father of the guy from Ween," Melchiondo admits. "Or they might know me as the dude who pumped gas for eight years. It's not a very big town. I don't think my neighbors even know that I'm in a band."
