This is a rare case where I am actually hoping for some form of rehab, like "sober the gently caress up and take this seriously" kind of rehab.

It really feels like everyone has given up this year, doesn't it?

"a state of being lost in performance" is a hell of a euphemism.

Yeah, this is not good. He was clearly not sober at the MSG show, which really kind of surprised considering his health scare. Didn't interfere with the show, so fine, I didn't think much of it.

He seemed fine at the Iggy show last year.... I feel like he's been much more off on this tour specifically. It's getting scary now

Name a good movie that isn't Inception or Fight Club.

he was drinking and smoking on stage at the MKE show and gave like a 2 minute high-as-gently caress speech before playing fortress which on its own would be fine/funny

kicking photographers in the face and having a recent health scare kills the party

Perhaps it's in the nature of television. Just waves in space.


Josh just posted a 2 part video on the QOTSA Instagram where he apologized to her and says that he did it. The Facebook post must have been a lawyer.

Still doesn't make it right, but it's a much better apology.

Please be excited.


If he'd just posted that straight up it probably would've gone over quiet well, but after the first post it comes across as far less sincere (regardless of whether it is or not).

It's a piece of JUNK!

Yeah, the initial statement reads like "we have to get in front of this thing quick" and the video apology is more like Josh had a chance to sit down and watch the video of what happened over and over until it made him sick. Which is what needed to happen.

Change whatever you have to change to make this right, man

That's the one part of this whole thing I'm ok with, actually.

This sucks. I really hope someone gets through to Josh before he has another "knee surgery." In the last two years stars are either dying or killing their careers and at his current pace Josh could easily do both before New Year's.

idk how you can have like 3 kids and still be getting so hosed up you kick a cameraperson in the face and then cut your forehead open at your own show. I've been a fan my whole life but not at least offering to pay the medical bills and also for a new camera is the biggest chump bullshit ever. it would have been so easy to make amends but it dragged out long enough to get picked up everywhere. hope he gets some loving help.

Since this happened I've been trying to sell off my tickets to an upcoming show that I got like a month prior to the incident and not one single bite.

Already seem em three times back in their strongest years, don't need to depress myself and see him in a self-destructive mentality on stage. I sincerely hope he stops what he's doing to

It's not so much expectations as I don't want him to kill himself. He's obviously crying for help, including but not limited to making a video saying he needs to get help. So yeah, I want him to get help.

Personally I've never asked anyone for help by kicking a woman in the face, but maybe I should try it

People are under a lot of stress, Bradley.

More importantly, last night they played Do It Again, Song For The Deaf, and How To Handle a Rope. gently caress, those three are super rare, and to play them all on the same show.

Yeah in Vancouver they played a bunch of unexpected songs; Monsters in the Parasol, Tangled Up in Plaid, Everybody Knows that You're Insane, You Can't Quit Me Baby, Song for the Deaf and Song for the Dead, which was the ender. They opened with If I Had a Tail, one of my favourites. Just a killer set, absolute monster of a show.

I missed Eagles as the opener, waiting for peeps to give tickets to and then in line for beer. But that's ok, they aren't really suited to large venues like the old hockey arena we were in and I've seen them a bunch of times already.

He's not going to off himself. The band isn't breaking up or being banned or whatever. He has a temper and poor impulse control sometimes, this is like his 3rd or 4th assault and not even the worst of them.

There's a difference between getting a little belligerent and being so slobbering drunk/stoned/whatever onstage that you kick a fan in the face for no reason and don't even realize it until someone shows you a video. Also we're talking about a guy who was literally dead once because he had too much crap in his system. This is not normal or admirable. I didn't care about him getting into fist fights with other bands or whatever, but this is different.

I'm glad your crystal ball says he's gonna be fine, but I'm just calling it like I see it.

Maybe, but wouldn't it sound like he's trying to get out of a settlement for cheap if he does that? Or if he throws in some money offer on top of the medical bills, then it's like he's trying to haggle.

He should obviously pay for it, but how does he offer without sounding like an rear end in a top hat? "Shrug and wait for the lawsuit" seems to be his approach.
