Comments from Paul Williams

I'm sure this is rhetorical as he never played on an album and is pretty much not a name anyone recognizes, but since you asked... He was the guitarist that replaced Pat Smear when Pat left at the MTV Music Awards or maybe it was the Movie Awards (Lat 97). He toured for the rest of that tour (The Colour and The Shape). When the Foo Fighters were recording their 3rd album they kicked him out, apparently without explanation. I remember reading a Rolling Stone article where he said he didn't listen to Foo Fighters and only ever heard Everlong before joining. He was Dave's friend from Scream, and he came off as pretentious, and well, lame in that interview. He seemed to be in it to become famous. He kept talking as though he were some great guitar player. My guess is he got kicked out of the band because he's oblivious as to how much he sucks as a person.

Which photo was photo-shopped? One pic has the slice on the left-side of his face, and one pic has it on the right-side.

This is a really good list. I think the acoustic version of Division Day that KCRW has is the best version of that song.I also like Shooting Star a lot.
