I haven't heard them cover any of Weezer's material after Pinkerton so it wouldn't surprise me that something happened...or Chino just recognizes when there is talent involved and when their isn't.
I spoke with Matt Sharp once who pretty much said the exact same thing about Rivers. Matt was the heart and soul of behind Weezer's first two albums.
