Watch Josh Homme Drum for Eagles of Death Metal
Between Queens of the Stone Age, Them Crooked Vultures and whatever else he has going on, Josh Homme rarely has time to perform with his other band, Eagles of Death Metal. But he made time last night (June 17) as the group played a gig at Koko in London, where Homme joined his bandmates and sat in on drums. Check out video above.
Reports indicate there were nearly as many famous musicians in the crowd as there were on stage. Notable figures in attendance included Iggy Pop, Arctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner, former Guns N' Roses bassist Duff McKagan and Miles Kane.
Since forming the band in 1998 with Jesse Hughes, his main contributions have come on their recorded output, which includes three studio albums. The band also announced yesterday that they're working on a fourth album, Zipper Down – their first since 2008.
Homme said of the album, "The new album, ‘Zipper Down,’ really represents to me an attitude and philosophy of life. One should not zipper up, they should zipper down and let it all hang out… In an independent study, four out of three doctors said ‘Zipper Down’ is an eargasm trapped inside a crazerbeam. And I believe them."
