of the Stone Age are an odd bunch. Despite being one of the biggest
bands on the planet right now, they still enjoy the advantages that come
with relative obscurity. Josh Homme's band of misfits could sell out
Wembley Stadium and still have your friends ask who they are. However,
it's not as if the band see that as a negative.
lack of mainstream awareness means QOTSA remain one of the most
experimental and interesting bands in rock right now. With every release
comes a new sound, glued together by their trademark weirdness. The
eclectic back catalogue has certainly paid off, with the group
headlining festivals all across the world and scooping 46 award
nominations over their 24-year run.
course, you don't spend nearly a quarter of a century playing music
without making some cool friends in the process, and Homme has certainly
built quite a group of miscreants. Having worked with pretty much
everyone from the Arctic Monkeys to Elton John, the King of Cool has written more lyrics than you've had hot dinners, but can you remember them all?
