Rivers Cuomo, the introverted frontman of nerdy power-pop quintet Weezer, finished his collegiate tour Thursday (June 8) when he graduated from Harvard. After wrapping up his other tour -- a massive road show in support of platinum-selling Make Believe -- Cuomo, 35, headed back to Harvard, the university he's been attending intermittently since 1995. The sweater-attired, Buddy Holly-impersonator earned his bachelor's degree in English and reportedly a spot in the prestigious academic honor society, Phi Beta Kappa.
