Favorite Josh Homme Band – Readers Poll
Josh Homme is certainly one of the most prolific musicians of the last two decades. His recent appearance in country legend Glen Campbell’s video is only one of many accomplishments by Homme. Since beginning the now-legendary stoner rock band Kyuss at the age of 14, Homme has dedicated both his teenage and adult years to music and his ever-evolving craft.
Formed in 1987, the band that would go on to be Kyuss was formed with Homme’s friends John Garcia and Brant Bjork in Palm Desert, California. Having released four full-length albums, Kyuss became a cult phenomenon. Over 15 years after the band’s lengthy hiatus, one-time members of the band began to play once again as Kyuss Lives!, which led to Homme filing a lawsuit against his former bandmates.
After leaving Kyuss in 1995, Homme began a group called Gamma Ray, which eventually became Queens of the Stone Age. The band was met with massive success with both underground and mainstream appeal. QOTSA created their most successful record, ‘Songs for the Deaf’ in 2002, which showcased the hits ‘No One Knows’ and ‘Go With the Flow.’
Shortly after the formation of Queens of the Stone Age, Homme formed the Desert Sessions in 1997. Defined as a music collective series, which in fact, “cannot be defined” according to Homme, the Desert Sessions released vinyl recordings of 10 albums, which have also been condensed into five CDs.
Eagles of Death Metal have existed since 1998 and consists of only two full-time members, Josh Homme and Jesse Hughes. The band has since released three albums, all of which have received mostly positive reactions from both fans and critics.
Finally, Homme helped form the supergroup Them Crooked Vultures with Dave Grohl and former Led Zeppelin bassist John Paul Jones in 2009. The band’s self-titled debut has already been hailed as a modern rock opus, continuing the more-than-respectable path Homme has carved for himself.
