Joshua Homme is an American Rock musician and multi-instrumentalist. He was a founding member of the desert rock band Kyuss, and also as the founding and only continuous member of the hard rock band Queens of the Stone Age ( QOTSA ), in which he sings and plays guitar and sometimes bass. Homme co-founded and occasionally performs with Eagles of Death Metal as its drummer, and continues to produce and release a musical improv series with other musicians, mostly from the Palm Desert Scene, known as The Desert Sessions. Josh also plays in the super group Them Crooked Vultures with Dave Grohl and other musical greats.
