(Rolling Stone)   Josh Homme backpedals on his criticism of the Grammy Awards, insists he was "really drunk" when he made the comment. Apparently he realizes biting the hand that feeds him is a bad idea   (rollingstone.com) divider line 27

Glad tfa explained who he is or I'd have had to be that guy.

Does winning a Grammy really translate into higher record sales?

Never send a Josh Homme to do a Jesse Hughes' job.

Get to a new TCV album already. I know, with the Foos in the studio now, it isn't happening any time soon.

fusillade762: Does winning a Grammy really translate into higher record sales?


I only listen to bands that have won a Grammy. That way I know they're good.

Get REALLY drunk (or stoned) and get Kyuss back together!

This. A data cd containing Sky Valley, Blues for the Red Sun, and ...and the Circus leaves town is the only thing I've had in my car cd player for the last 3 months, heh.

Anyone ever see him and Craig Kilborn in the same room together?

No excuses.  In vino veritas, muthafugga...

No big deal. It's pretty obvious form the "hand that feeds him" crack that the subbby has no idea who he is either.

Macklemore has more Grammys than Tupac, Biggie, and Wu Tang combined. The Grammys don't matter.

Josh Homme friggin' rules.

Brant Bjork & Scott Reeder? One is a former and the other a current member of Fu Manchu. The rock world really is tiny.

This guy makes awesome music.  That is all I care about.

The article is referring to Scott Reeder the bassist (former member of Kyuss), not Scott Reeder the drummer (current member of Fu Manchu).

Though both Scott Reeders are currently in Sun & Sail Club, so hey, the rock world is still pretty tiny (at least certain segments of it are).

And Homme does a good job of casting his nets wide and playing with lots of people.

His drunk assessment of the situation was spot on.   No one with a clue should care about these awards to begin with.

This may also have something to do with the album his wife is releasing in April that she may or may not want to be in the running for a Grammy for.

Is he sure it wasn't the nicotine, valium, vicodin, marijuana or ecstacy?

or alcohol?

/song that turned me on to qotsa
//had friends who were into kyuss, but for whatever reason i didn't get into them till later

I just listened to Imagine Dragons (band that took the best hard rock grammy over QotSA). Whoever picks the award winners are idiots.
 
2014-03-13 03:48:26 PM  
I'd have more respect for him if he stuck by his original statement, drunk or not.

The No Reservations episode with him and Anthony shooting arrows at that Jethro Tull album that won best heavy metal award and drinking corvette summer's was one the best hours of tv I ever watched. Plus the story about qosta drinking with Jay-Z and him putting a bottle of Edusse cognac before they get there picture taken together is hilarious. I think he recounts the story on the Nerdist podcast he was on or it might have Marc Maron's not sure which. Anyways he is a highly respected musician in my book grammy or not.
 
2014-03-13 05:13:26 PM  
He should have blamed it on John Garcia.


Or said Nick Oliveri made him do it at gun point.
 
2014-03-13 11:45:56 PM  
I missed the backpedaling part. Was it when he said he'd play there again if they "got their shiat together"?
