Josh Homme, the lead singer of Queens of the Stone Age, recently spoke with NME, revealing his profound admiration for Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters.

Homme highlights the unique bond he shares with Grohl, describing it as one of his most enduring and successful relationships. He cherishes their deep conversations over waffles, where they blend their thoughts and experiences like watercolors. Homme appreciates not only Grohl’s positive attributes but also embraces his darker aspects.

Further emphasizing Grohl’s uniqueness, Homme points out how Grohl’s identity as a songwriter profoundly influences his drumming style, setting him apart from other musicians. This creative synergy is a key factor in their collaborations.

Homme notes that discussing drum parts with Grohl is particularly exciting because of Grohl’s ability to make them as musical as any guitar riff or vocal line.

Their collaboration extends beyond casual meetings; Grohl has been a significant part of Queens of the Stone Age’s history. He played drums on the band’s acclaimed 2002 album, ‘Songs for the Deaf,’ and was also their touring drummer for a period. Additionally, the two formed Them Crooked Vultures in 2009, further cementing their creative and personal bond through another successful musical project.
