Featured Queens Of The Stone Age stories

Next year, YouTube will celebrate its 10th anniversary. For nearly a decade, then, music videos have belonged almost entirely to the internet. Once upon a time, video directors made their work for TV, expecting you to run across their images when you were flipping through channels. By the time YouTube hit its second year, that… More »

I came so close to including the Ghost Of A Saber Tooth Tiger’s “Animals” video this week, partly because it’s good on its own merits and partly because “eyelinered Jodorowskian hippie cult leader” is a way better look for Sean Lennon than “Cibo Matto bassist” or “guy in the East Village X-Large store waiting for… More »

Which album are you gunning for at the Grammys? If you’re a regular reader of this site, chances are you’re hoping Daft Punk gets lucky with an Album Of The Year win for Random Access Memories, or perhaps you’d prefer if Kendrick Lamar took home top honors for good kid, m.A.A.d. city. Both acts are… More »

Them Crooked Vultures @ Metro, Chicago 8/9/09

After three days of extreme sweat and fatigue from running between stages in Grant Park for Lollapalooza (post TK), ordinarily there’d be zero appeal to a midnight Sunday show in an overcapacity rock club without a working air conditioner. But there was nothing ordinary about last night’s gig at the 1,100-person Metro in Wrigleyville. And… More »

The Dead Weather’s Horehound Album Art, Tour Dates

A couple months ago Jack White launched Third Man Records’ Nashville offices via his newest supergroup, The Dead Weather. As we mentioned then, and as you know by now, the band’s made up of the Kills’ Alison Mosshart, Raconteur Jack Lawrence on bass, Queens Of The Stone Age’s Dean Fertita’s on guitar, and White doing… More »

The Dead Weather @ Bowery Ballroom, NYC 4/14/09

You couldn’t be surprised when the Dead Weather’s roadies came out in uniform dress code (suits and bowler hats) last night: This was a Jack White show after all. Although according to those who secured access to last night’s NYC debut of supergroup the Dead Weather, the focus was primarily on the Kills vixen Aliso… More »

Jack White Unveils Dead Weather Supergroup

Office parties can be lame, but not when Jack White’s your boss. Earlier tonight Conan’s friend launched Third Man Records’ new Nashville offices by debuting a supergroup called The Dead Weather. The Kills’ Alison Mosshart is its frontwoman, Jack White contributes drums and vocals, Raconteur Jack Lawrence plays bass, and Queens Of The Stone Age’… More »

Arctic Monkeys Working On New Album With Josh Homme, Releasing Live DVD

Whatever people say they are, that is what they’re not. Unless people say the Arctic Monkeys are working with Queens Of The Stone Age man and internationally renowned lover of gays, Josh Homme. Because that is something they definitely are. The BBC writes (via goldenfiddle):

The singer revealed the collaboration at the London premiere… More »

New Eagles Of Death Metal Video – “Wannabe In L.A.”

Last night I was reading a “Hall Of Fame” piece on Sky Valley in the new Decibel and found myself thinking about Josh Homme’s path from Kyuss to Queens Of The Stone Age and, well, to this. As mentioned, Eagles Of Death Metal’s third studio album Heart On is out later this month. Fresh off… More »

Eagles Of Death Metal’s Heart On Album Art

I was surprised as anyone when Josh Homme and his Queens Of The Stone Age didn’t make it onto Out’s recent list. No worries, the man’s taking a break from Norwegian tirades to make some of that jocular non-death metal with co-hort Jesse Hughes in Eagles Of Death Metal. The duo’s third album Heart OnMore »

Queens Of The Stone Age, Tenacious D, And Matt Cameron Cover Cream

Jack Black took a break from terrorizing red carpets with silliness and blanket Tropic Thunder promotion to join Queens Of The Stone Age the other night, at L.A.’s Music Box at Henry Fonda Theatre, in memory of cancer victim and QOTSA collaborator Natasha Shneider. In exchange for the $100 tickets (which benefited the Natasha SchneiderMore »

New UNKLE – “Chemical” (Featuring Josh Homme)

It’s been a while since UNKLE asked us to hold hands, but James Lavelle & Co. are back with “Chemical,” a collaboration with Josh Homme, who you may last remember berating a pre-teen in Norway (and later reminding us he’s not a homophobe, just a misunderstood macho guy with rage issues). The song Uncle Josh… More »

Josh Homme: I Am Not A Homophobe

Clearly we’re not quite all talked out over the arguably Homme-phobic, “faggot”-using, sodomy-threatening (promising?) rant Josh went on after having himself a Urie moment in Oslo. Now we should probably cut Josh some slack because he was sick, sick, sick with a fever (see what I did there), and because hey, as Chris Rock saidMore »

Josh Homme Verbally Abuses Fan

This happened at the Queens Of The Stone Age set during the Norwegian Wood Festival in Oslo over the weekend. A rowdy dumbass threw something at Josh Homme, who was apparently battling a fever. He was not having it. What followed was a profane, slur-laced tirade so intense I can’t do it justice by transcribing… More »

Queens Of The Stone Age Rail At Interscope, Go Way Underground

As we previously reported, Josh Homme and Co. doubled up their holiday sweaters, literally traveling underground to play a show in a German salt mine. Very Zola, except it’s not in France. Well, the event actually happened. We weren’t there, but this German television station was…

As was this teaser… More »

New Queens Of The Stone Age Video – “Make It Wit Chu”

The blues-ballad come on “Make It Wit Chu” first bowed four years ago on Vol. 9 of Josh Homme’s Desert Sessions series (then with an “I Wanna” prefix) before securing a starring role on Queens Of The Stone Age’s rather excellent Era Vulgaris, offering a smoky, lusty break from the rest of Era’s dirty grindhouseMore »

Celebrate Christmas With Queens Of The Stone Age And Chef Anthony Bourdain

Queens Of The Stone Age are playing a mile underground in a German salt mine next month (true), but when it comes to the holidays, there’s no place like the warm kitchen of a celebrity chef: Oui, Josh Homme & Co. are the official guests on the Travel Channel’s Anthony Bourdain’s Holiday Special. Via RollingStone:Last… More »

New Queens Of The Stone Age Video – “3’s & 7’s”

More like New Quentin Of The Stone Age Video, really. Shit kicks off in the shit-kicking guitar-squealing rumbler “3’s & 7’s” clip with a quick cameo from Bulby, but then the action moves into more fitting, Grindhouse territory — particularly, Tarantino’s B-movie/exploitation genre homage Death Proof (see: scantily clad hotties, dusty hot rod chases). I… More »

Austin City Limits ’07: Friday In Photos

Welcome to Austin City Limits 2007, where the weather’s hot, the tacos are tasty, and the toilets are very, very flammable. Folks all over town are still buzzing about the lineup’s loss of the exceedingly anxious White Stripes, but hey, it makes for good small talk fodder with the incredibly well informed hotel… More »

Stream Queens Of The Stone Age’s Era Vulgaris

The net has been flushed with content from the Queens: The two video versions of “Sick, Sick, Sick” brought hellfire gluttony and barely covered nipples to the proceedings; the Dan Deacon-inspired smart-ass character Bulby brought some “light” humor (rimshot) to the pre-release watercooler (now Bulby’s singing); and QOTSA covered Tom Waits to remind that they… More »

Queens Of The Stone Age Cover Tom Waits

Josh and the gang are making a deluxe package out of their release of “Sick, Sick, Sick,” the first single from the single-loaded Era Vulgaris (how good are “Make It Wit Chu,” “3’s & 7’s,” and “Into The Hollow”?). And it’s considerably less vain than LCD’s party for “All My Friends”; rather than get a… More »

Alternate Queens Of The Stone Age (Feat. Julian Casablancas) Video – “Sick, Sick, Sick”

Still no sign of Bulby! But this skeezed-out second-take on QOTSA’s first Vulgaris single comes packing its own digital delights, including a thrashing, hypercolored take on the dancing iPod silhouettes and a lost little girl with a thing for flicking off the cam and baring her assets. Obviously not intended for MTV USA! We scanned… More »

New UNKLE – War Stories

UK outfit UNKLE recently released the EP Nights Temper (A Prelude To War Stories), which is indeed a prelude to the project’s guest-laden third LP War Stories, due out this summer. James Lavelle’s called favors from the Cult’s Ian Astbury, QOTSA’s Josh Homme, Massive Attack’s 3D, and Autolux among others to further extend the UNKLE… More »
