Queens Of The Stone Age Blow The Roof Off Live On Letterman
On top of that, there was a bit of chatter that Homme's BFF Dave Grohl — who played drums on the majority of the album as well as 2002′s Songs For The Deaf — was in the house for this performance, which was webcast live.
In honor of the album's release, they played all but one song from …Like Clockwork in almost the exact order the songs appear on the record. Though the band has not played a ton of shows yet behind the album, the new songs were clearly practiced to near perfection. After a few line-up changes for the L.A. rockers (and a few old members back in the fold), this one is a clear fit, live at least.
The highlight of the hour-long set had to be "Kalopsia," which felt like some twisted version of a high school prom with its spotted low lights and dreamy slow-dance-ready pace. All the while, bloody animation involving masked a man flashed in the background, keeping in line with the twisted imagery seen in the album's videos, via British artist Boneface and animator Liam Brazier. The show was drenched in stunningly eerie visuals, and started off with a clever clip custom-created for the Live on Letterman occasion, seeing as it featured both Dave Letterman, Paul Shaffer and a running joke about Worldwide Pants. more on this story
