2013 was a huge year for Queens of the Stone Age as they returned with the critically hailed '… Like Clockwork' album. But frontman Josh Homme has not forgotten about his other projects. The vocalist reveals that he's planning on collaborating with Jesse Hughes on another Eagles of Death Metal album while also discussing the status of his long-recurring 'Desert Sessions' project.

One interesting thing that many Queens of the Stone Age fans know is that if you mess with frontman Josh Homme in any way while he's performing, the dude won't be happy. Homme has a few documented occasions of verbally assaulting fans who throw things at him, but in this clip from a recent gig, Homme tears apart a fan who jumps onstage and attempts to hug the frontman.
Already a two-time Grammy Award winner before the end of the night, Dave Grohl almost finished the Grammys on another high note. The Foo Fighters frontman joined Queens of the Stone Age, Nine Inch Nails and Fleetwood Mac legend Lindsey Buckingham for the show's closing performance -- at least what we got to see of it.
After teasing a Motorhead appearance earlier in the day, the complete Coachella 2014 lineup was revealed late Wednesday night (Jan. 8). This year's event features the reunion of hip-heroes OutKast, alterna-rockers Muse and Grammy winners Arcade Fire headlining the three nights, though there is still plenty of rock to go around.
Queens of the Stone Age released 'Era Vulgaris' in 2007, then took several years before releasing last year's highly acclaimed '… Like Clockwork' album. Granted, there was a full touring cycle and a major side project (Them Crooked Vultures) in between, but Josh Homme is intent on there being a quicker turnaround for the band's next disc.
In 2013, Queens of the Stone Age have released a staggering amount of material, both sonically and visually. This year will be remembered as one of the band's best and most productive, but QOTSA aren't finished yet. Just revealed from Queens of the Stone Age is a unique, interactive music video for 'The Vampyre of Time and Memory' that feels like a walk through Disneyland's Haunted Mansion.
