In conjunction with Queens Of The Stone Age’s upcoming Canadian tour, the band will re-release 2007’s Era Vulgaris with a bonus EP that includes (among other potentially entertaining effluvia) a cover of Brian Eno’s “Needle In The Camel’s Eye.” Naturally, I’m psyched, but I still think Homme and Co.

So last night I hunkered down with a big bowl of stuffing for the long-awaited (in my household, anyway) appearance of Queens Of The Stone Age, decked out in winter finery straight off the Sears clearance rack, on the special holiday episode of Anthony Bourdain’s No Reservations. More »
“During Queens Of The Stone Age’s recent European tour, the band played an exclusive unplugged set one mile underground in a former salt mine in Erfurt, Germany.” Okay, a rehab clinic, Anthony Bourdain’s Travel Channel Christmas special (airing Monday!), and a salt mine. More »
Everybody’s extra pissed off today, it seems. And even if Queen Of The Stone Age and working man Josh Homme lacks Morrissey’s bone-dry wit, he’s just as upset with his corporate handlers at Interscope as Moz is with the NME, railing (in all-caps, no less) against “the glorified groupie with the fucking hundred thousand dollar expense accounts” in this typically entertaining sit-down where he makes the most of the f-bomb and gives Jimmy Iovine the atomic gas face.
Queens Of The Stone Age are scheming with one of the Sifl and Olly guys to produce an animated flick starring their cartoon lightbulb mascot. Guess this means our pitch for a Saturday-morning Homme Babies series was turned down. More »
Speaking of sex tapes I’d definitely watch, good samaritan Josh Homme and his Queens Of The Stone Age were recently recruited by an “unnamed Los Angeles drying out clinic” to provide “a light-hearted, intimate performance” for patients.

Presenting the new Queens of the Stone Age video, in which Josh Homme indulges his alpha-male bred love of degrading exploitation trash from the Land Before Imus (a.k.a. the ’70s) in the most awesomely corny OTT way. More »
Apparently because I’ve been a very good little boy this year, two of my masculine ideals–rugged-ass desert boogie king/Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme and middle-aged alcoholic vagabond/populist-elitist foodie Anthony Bourdain–are bringing me the exact opposite of a lump of coal when they come together for, according to Rolling Stone, the “weirdest holiday special ever” on a upcoming episode of Bourdain’s No Reservations:
Queens of the Stone Age’s Josh Homme (number one hunka-hunka I most regret not including in our hottest hotties list) has joined Iron Maiden’s Bruce Dickinson as the latest humanitarian to go after harridan, reality TV show judge, and Ozzy-enabler Sharon Osbourne for the way Osbourne (and her hubby) run Ozzfest:
Alicia Keys says she wants to book studio time with both the White Stripes and Queens of the Stone Age in the near future. As someone with a huge crush on Josh Homme and a grudging acceptance of Ms. Keys since “You Don’t Know My Name,” I’m down. More »
