Queens of the Stone Age are one of rock’s best active bands over the last 2 decades while really only having one constant member, Josh Homme. Over the last few records, they’ve started to settle on a somewhat regular lineup, but at times, QOTSA had the feel of a Supergroup, or at the very least, an extension of Josh’s Desert Sessions recordings. The who’s who list of guest appearances include: Dave Grohl, Mark Lanegan, Trent Reznor, Billy Gibbons, and Elton John. If this is your first experience of Queens, enjoy. Robb and I are both big fans, so we talked A LOT about them on this episode. There’s some great BONUS CONTENT in the 2nd half of the episode including more roots examples (The Beatles, doo-wop, and more) included. Bonus Content starts at 8:06.
