Josh Homme: 'I Never Really Cared About Playing to the Guys'
In an interview with Radio.Com, Josh Homme has revealed that he never considered himself a metal guy, and that the metal leanings of Queens of the Stone Age are actually derived from Black Flag.

"I'm not a metal guy at all. I was raised on Black Flag. I never thought of myself as a metal guy. I never felt like I was in a metal band. I like eerie and beautiful and sex to all be combined ... which I guess would be an Enya record..."

"Being a smooth operator has been the goal period. I never really cared about playing to the guys because, y'know, who cares? I mean, no offense. When you're a kid you play heavy because you listen to Black Flag and there ya go."

Homme recently announced that QOTSA are ready to hit the studio to record a follow-up to 2013's "...Like Clockwork."
