Queens of the Stone Age may have gotten the royal shaft at the 56th Annual Grammy Awards and it's something that still stings a little for Josh Homme, as was apparent after the frontman addressed it during a concert in Houston.
One interesting thing that many Queens of the Stone Age fans know is that if you mess with frontman Josh Homme in any way while he's performing, the dude won't be happy. Homme has a few documented occasions of verbally assaulting fans who throw things at him, but in this clip from a recent gig, Homme tears apart a fan who jumps onstage and attempts to hug the frontman.
Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Age recently made quite a memorable entrance to a party in the Hollywood Hills, in a manner of speaking. The frontman was allegedly run off the road by an out of control Range Rover only to end up smashing into a fence, literally crashing an outdoor party.
In the Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl, Nine Inch Nails' Trent Reznor and Queens of the Stone Age's Josh Homme, you've got three of rock's great frontmen, yet with their 'Sound City' soundtrack collaboration the three musicians chose to let their instruments do the talking on a new song called 'Mantra.'
Queens of the Stone Age, who last released an album in 2007 in the form of ‘Era Vulgaris’ and whose frontman and lead guitarist Josh Homme went on to moonlight in Them Crooked Vultures with Dave Grohl and John Paul Jones, are creeping back into action.
For the past two years, Josh Homme has kept his focus on Them Crooked Vultures, his supergroup with Dave Grohl and Led Zeppelin's John Paul Jones. But next month, the guitarist will get back to work with his main act, Queens of the Stone Age. The band will hit the studio to start work on their sixth disc, the follow-up to 2007's Era Vulgaris.
