Sweethead Image and video hosting by TinyPic Speaking of Queens Of The Stone Age, Troy Van Leeuwen and his side project, Sweethead are playing tonight at the Camden Barfly. You'll be a damn fool to miss it. A fool I say! Ellie Greenwich Image and video hosting by TinyPic The US songwriter died at the age of 68, of a heart attack after being treated for pneumonia at New York hospital.
