Broken was one of the last bands Scott Shriner played in before joining Weezer.[1][2]

Overview

Broken described its own music as "punk rock and roll." The duo of Shelley Brien (later affiliated with Mark Lanegan of Queens of the Stone Age) and Michael "Mick" Barragan (formerly of the Sub Pop-signed Plexi) co-founded Broken in 1999. They recorded a four-song demo later that year with Duff McKagan, bassist of Guns N' Roses, and worked with several drummers and bassists. By the end of the year, they had settled on Shriner and drummer Kelly Hagerman as consistent band members.[1] [2]

Shriner would go on to collaborate with McKagan several times in his career, including giving him bass lessons.[3][4]

It is unknown if Shriner ever recorded anything with the band.
