    i heard him play on a few tunes,but when i heard No One Knows WOW ! what an awesome tune ! i cannot believe this song was'nt HUGE .it has it all,from soup to nuts.it amazes me how some great songs get mild play and half a$$ed reviews,while jack-asses like"I WONT MENTION ANY NAMES"get all the hipe.Sad, so so, Sad. when a song like this goes nearly hot,and songs like "So I got High"go gold.

    Umm what he said. "No One Knows" got tons of airplay when it was first released, and rightfully so. Just wait until you hear the rest of the CD; I'd rate that song as only about the fourth or fifth best on the album.

    Where i live its NEVER played,let alone being "overplayed".Iguess my pathetic local stations still insist on playing the same 10 songs from the same 10 bands.If i was hearing them on the radio,i would'nt have written this thread. Obviously i dont hear much of them,which is why i did this.A-DUH.:D

    If you dig the QOTSA, check out their first "Self Titled" album. IMO, it is their best work although Songs For The Deaf is damn good. I'm a big fan of the band and am looking forward to seeing them again this Saturday at Lollapalooza...

    I'm pissed. I saw that two of my favorite bands, QOTSA and A Perfect Circle were both playing Lollapalooza and I couldn't wait to get tickets. Then I learned that APC is *filling in* for QOTSA for all of the shows near where I live. You get one or the other. Life is not fair. Somebody should fix that.
