Salty Brine: "I'm a Lot Like You"
A rockstar legend with an inferiority complex. An officer's promise made but never fulfilled. A girl. A letter. A song. A knife. Weezer's gritty sophomore album, Pinkerton, and Puccini's soaring opera, Madame Butterfly, converge in the latest installment of The Living Record Collection.
