Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo was caught up in an earthquake in Japan on Friday.
The Buddy Holly hitmakers are currently in the Far East for a series of concerts and were left shaken when a 5.3-magnitude tremor hit eastern Japan.

Buildings in the capital, Tokyo, were shaken by the quake although there were no early reports of significant damage or injury – but Cuomo was left unsettled by the incident as he’s staying in a high-rise hotel.

In a post on his Twitter.com blog, he writes, “We just had an earthquake here in Japan so I was asking the Japanese tweeters how strong it was (and) where it was. I’m in a high-rise hotel.”

Thousands of people were killed when a devastating earthquake and tsunami hit Japan’s east coast in March.
