    I can't help but feel like it's a bit insulting to her individual career to just call her "Mrs. Homme"
    We'll she is married to Josh.. I'd be fine with it if I was her
    I believe they divorced a while back
    I believe you are wrong.
    My bad, I swear I remember hearing that somewhere.
    She was married and then divorced from Tim Armstrong of Rancid, she's still with Homme.
    I'm sure you'll be right as soon as she finds someone more famous to use. I actually liked The Distillers back in the day; but I would be highly suspicious of her if I were a rock star and she wanted to date me.

    The only reason I came to this article was to see whether that was a typo ("Mrs Homme"). Didn't know this was his wife.
    she needs to get the distillers back together they ****in kill it and I never got to see them live
    It got so much better towards the end, but damn, these "drums"! They bring me pain.
    She's supporting QotSA and NIN on the co-headline gigs in Australia next month.
