Trivia (19)

Was a member of Kyuss until their break-up; Founder and currently in Queens of the Stone Age
Has been playing guitar since he was 9 years old
Has a massive cork collection of over 6,000
Some of his favorite musicians are The Stooges, Ween, Björk, Johnny Cash, and Jimi Hendrix.
His band, Queens of the Stone Age, has members that have constantly changed over the years expect for him and his bassist Nick Oliveri. "Songs of the Deaf", their most recent album, has three different people singing lead (Josh, Nick, and Mark Lanegan) and Dave Grohl of The Foo Fighters and Nirvanna on drums.
Plays drums and goes by the name Carlo Von Sexron in his 'other' band, Eagles of Death Metal.
Often writes lyrics that seem arbitrary by the way they are written but hold personal meaning to him, so that the song can mean anything to the listener
In spite of his often fierce music, Homme has gained a reputation as one of the "nice guys" of hard rock (like his friend Dave Grohl), due the encouraging atmosphere he creates for musicians he collaborates with and his pleasant, self-effacing public persona.
In 2004, mysteriously fired long-time musical-partner Nick Oliveri from Queens of the Stone Age, making him the sole remaining front man of the constantly changing "group".
Became engaged to The Distillers front-woman Brody Dalle in January 2005.
Fired Nick Oliveri in 2004 for his wild behavior, which is also the very reason he felt he should play with Nick in the first place. One of the final straws was when playing a show Nick walked over and said "this isn't a good audience" then threw an open beer bottle into the crowd later in the show. Several more instances like this made Josh decide to part ways as band mates but remain friends.
