Dave Grohl: 'Queens Of The Stone Age Are The Baddest Rock And Roll Band In The World!'
Dave Grohl, who played drums on QOTSA's 2002 album "Songs For The Deaf", spoke about his feelings for the group, which he has recently rejoined and just how "completely ridiculous" the new record is sounding. "With Queens of the Stone Age, like, there were no boundaries with that band, there were no limits with them, it was like if you did something insane, you'd do more, if you did something that seemed too ridiculous - and honestly the new Queens of the Stone Age record, I'm playing drums on that, and I'll do something so completely ridiculous, I'll just, like, 'There's no way that that Josh isn't going to let me do that,' and he'll say, 'Do that for forty-five seconds, over and over again, that's become, like, part of the song, that is a big part of the song,' and that's the way they work," Grohl said. Elaborating on the general atmosphere that surrounds Queens Of The Stone Age, Grohl added: "When you walk into a festival backstage with Queens of the Stone Age, it's like, the record stops. People stop and they stare, and it's like, Queens of the Stone Age are, without question, the baddest rock and roll band in the world! And they still are, and when 'Songs For The Deaf', when that came out, it blew people's minds, man, for real." According to NME, Dave Grohl is filling in for Joey Castillo, who has left the band according to signer Josh Homme, who broke the news earlier this month (November 6) on Zane Lowe's BBC Radio 1 show. The band also posted a picture on their Facebook page, showing Grohl's name on the mixing desk (pictured below). Speaking to Zane Lowe, Homme said: "[Grohl] and I have this wonderful musical relationship which we don't have with other people. It's a very cool and comfortable position."
