Queens Of The Stone Age

Formed from the ashes of stoner rock icons Kyuss, Queens of the Stone Age reunited the group's singer/guitarist Josh Homme, drummer Alfredo Hernandez, and bassist Nick Oliveri along with new guitarist/keyboardist Dave Catching. The project's origins date back to Homme, who in the wake of Kyuss' 1995 demise relocated to Seattle to tour with the Screaming Trees; he soon began working with a revolving lineup of musicians including the Trees' Van Conner, Soundgarden's Matt Cameron, and Dinosaur Jr.'s Mike Johnson, recording a series of 7"s originally issued under the name Gamma Ray. After rechristening the group Queens of the Stone Age, Homme recruited Hernandez to begin work on their self-titled debut LP, issued in late 1998 on Loosegroove; after the album was completed, Oliveri left the Dwarves to rejoin his former bandmates, with the subsequent addition of Catching rounding out the roster. In addition to extensive touring, Homme put together a series of albums for the indie label Man's Ruin; the various volumes of the Desert Sessions feature Homme's collaborations with a loose-knit, revolving-door lineup of like-minded musicians, some from bands like Soundgarden, Fu Manchu, and Monster Magnet.

In mid-2000, Queens of the Stone Age issued their sophomore album, R (as in the movie rating; some promo copies were distributed with the original title, II), before appearing on that year's Ozzfest tour. By that point, drummer Hernandez had been replaced by a tag-team combo of Gene Troutman and Nicky Lucero. The group built a healthy buzz courtesy of accolades from such renowned publications as Rolling Stone, and due to good old-fashioned touring. 2001 saw the group perform at the massive Rock in Rio festival (after which Oliveri was arrested by the Brazilian police for performing nude) and a spot on the year's Ozzfest. The same year, Homme and Oliveri put together yet another volume of the Desert Sessions series, while QOTSA assembled a third studio album.

Ex-Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl was very vocal in the press about his admiration of the Queens, which led to an invitation for him to join the group for the third album's recording and, subsequently, supporting tour. Surprisingly, Grohl accepted, putting the Foo Fighters on hold (despite having a new album completed and ready to go). One of the year's most eagerly anticipated hard rock albums, Songs for the Deaf was issued in August 2002 and was preceded by a tour that saw Oliveri and Homme joined by Grohl on drums, ex-Screaming Trees vocalist Mark Lanegan, and A Perfect Circle guitarist/keyboardist Troy Van Leeuwen. As if their schedules weren't busy enough between QOTSA and their other projects, Oliveri and Homme signed on to pen the musical score to the movie The Dangerous Lives of Altar Boys (with backing by Rage Against the Machine drummer Brad Wilk), and formed a new project, Headband, with ex-Marilyn Manson bassist Twiggy Ramirez and Amen frontman Casey Chaos. Homme also hooked up with old friend Jesse Hughes for Eagles of Death Metal, which issued the Peace Love Death Metal LP in 2004. (Homme played drums.)

When QOTSA reconvened for the March 2005 LP Lullabies to Paralyze, the lineup featured Homme, Joey Castillo, Alain Johannes, Van Leeuwan, and Lanegan. The Over the Years and Through the Woods CD/DVD appeared in November that same year. It featured live material from the band's tour for Lullabies, but also included rare and archival Queens footage. In 2007, the band (Lanegan at this point was only a guest) released the excellent Era Vulgaris, which also included contributions from the Strokes' Julian Casablancas, among others.

Era Vulgaris wrapped up QOTSA's contract with Interscope and the group went into a period of inactivity as Homme pursued other projects over the next few years. Chief among these was Them Crooked Vultures, a power trio also featuring Dave Grohl and Led Zeppelin bassist John Paul Jones, who released an eponymous album in 2009. The next year saw a deluxe reissue of Rated R and then in 2011, the band reissued their hard-to-find debut and did a small supporting tour behind this deluxe edition. QOTSA began recording a new album in 2012, bringing Grohl back into the fold and also finding spots for Mark Lanegan, Trent Reznor, Jake Shears, and Elton John, as well as Nick Oliveri. Queens of the Stone Age signed with Matador in 2013 and the ...Like Clockwork album was released in June of that year. ~ Jason Ankeny & Greg Prato, Rovi

The band bio needs updating (new drummer and bassist)... Agree with Roadburner63 , but it is NOT a problem! Only problem is they aren't coming back to NC on this tour! SEE THEM LIVE!!! One of the BEST concerts I have seen since beginning my concert experience 40 years ago at age 11, when I saw The Rolling Stones.
@theoneandon l y c a n d l e s t i c k I guess you can use No One Knows.

Does anyone know any good school appropriate songs for school? I have to write about it so it has to be lyrics i understand.
I have a problem. I now have all the QOTSA albums and can't seem to want to listen to anything else! Except Eagles Of Death Metal and Them Crooked Vultures of course!
I love you so much I could die. See you in Perth next week!!
QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE IS BEST BAND EVER
best rock and roll band of our generation \m/
I love qotsa! I don't need to elaborate. If you have any other way to get the job done with the same time as a panther. Then we need to know if you are not a fan of qotsa. Lol I also love the guess the next word function on my phone.
Recently started listening to qotsa a lot, they are really good and quite original, love era vulgaris
brilliant!!!

Lanagan is the perfect "second voice" of QOTSA, and about 20 other bands:D
I Appear Missing makes me want to cry.
im not a huge fan of the new album, course i said that about opeth's heritage album and now i like that quite a bit.
best song off new album...I appear missing... then I sat by the ocean. So there.And if Josh Homme met me, he'd fall in love, hmmmmm.....
The black keys are poser hipsters? Okay. And what kind of hipster are you for stereotyping ?
i hate Black keys. they are poseur hipsters
toferlewis
Not posting to internet fight Roadrunner63 , but really? 2 of those 3 songs are to me the blandest, most radio friendly, simplest songs on the album. Vampyre, Kalopsia and I Appear Missing are my favorites, but that’s one thing that’s great about QOTSA, variety.
Fairweather Friends, Smooth Sailing, I Sat by the Ocean... Best songs on the new album in that order. Best songs for 2013!

QOTSA are one of the most creative bands today! No One Knows is their best song.
We get these pills to swallow!!!!
why would they invite Elton John to anything? doesnt fit.
dsatoris
Roadbunner is right, I had to thumbs down a ton of Black Keys to hear one QOTHSA song! I had to re-add QOTHSA with the 'add variety' on their own channel! God bless you lincolnj57 and welcome home!
Thank you for your sacrifice and service lincolnj57! Keeping our freedom is one reason we all are able to enjoy great music!
My hearing is not the same since i got out of the Army
QOTSA is a very unique band with a amazing cast of Musicians. The project Josh started, Them Crooked Vultures, are awesome as well!
I think the complaints about White Stripes and Black Keys dominating our QOTSA channel has been heard by Pandora. I've been listening all morning and they have yet to play a song from either one of those bands. Of course they have only played one QOTSA song in the last 3 hours also.
Hardeez, you have to give these songs some time to grow on you. I really liked only 2 of the songs when I first previewed the album. Slowly I have added till I now have the whole album and really like all of them now. This style is unique I think and needs some time to grow on you, but once it does it sticks. I've hardly listened to anything else in my car since June.
It is hard to enjoy music when you are hard of hearing, take it from someone who knows. I am partially to blame, leave the rest to both natural and unnatural causes.
My God is the JOSH......
I like songs for the deaf but that's there only album ive listened to. I listened to part of like clockwork but it was awful.
@roadburner6 3 I felt the same too when I first heard of Songs for the Deaf (which was also the first album of theirs I listened to). After that, it grew on me that I liked them.
