I thought the Vultures were pretty good on SNL, I like the sound. I am not totally sold on the vocals as well, but it fits with the band---loud, rock, fuzz, with 1/2 part grunge, and 1/2 part dont fuk around!

Just keep hip hop, emo (not sure what that is exactly :roll: :?: ), and cookie cutter rock bands off SNL!!!!!!!!!!

Just my opinion........... ;)




That is one reason TCV really tripped me out...I try, but some of the SNL performances the past several years put me to sleep.

Yes, Josh Homme is the lead singer/lead guitarist for QOTSA. He was also the guitarist for a band called Kyuss in the mid-late 90s. Dave Grohl was also the drummer for Nirvana, he guest spotted on QOTSA's 3rd cd as the drummer on a few songs along with fronting the Foo Fighters



Kyuss was awesome! Check out this video for Green Machine. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fc-7FXzbeA0

yea i love Kyuss and pretty much all things Josh Homme. He used to plug his guitar into bass amps to get extra sludgy sound. They are real good and i advise any fan of stoner, desert soundin just plain hard rock to check them out, they not around anymore, but check out "Blues for the Red Sun"

queens of the stone age is agreat band although different. they are one of my favorites.

Thanks for the direction. QOTSA have always been one of the bands I was going to follow more, but did not. Kinda like Bevis Frond...I just have stayed in tune.

their first cd , self titled, is nearly impossible to find in a store, real or online, but it can be had for DL if you know where to look. (I can point you in the direction if you wish). Its very very good and more like Kyuss; heavier rock with a desert sort of feel if you know what im trying to say. their 2nd is called "R" and its one of my favorites, a lil more synth-ish, kinda hypnotic riffs and beats. Very drug-ish sounding. Songs for the Deaf is their 3rd album and one that had a few radio hits and had a lil more mainstream sound to it. Good songs on it despite being, not so much 'radio friendly', but songs that for lack of a better word, radio-acquainted. their 4th, Lullabies to Paralyze, is my least favorite overall. Some seemingly uninspired writing, but there are a few standouts, Skin on Skin, You Got a Killer Scene There Man, Everybody Knows That You Are Insane are really good. They put out a great live cd/dvd called 'Over the Years and Through the Woods' that was a very well constructed concert. Great setlist, inspired performance, just good overall. It featured a song off a mixtape series (called "The Desert Sessions") type thing they had done during the transition between Kyuss and QOTSA. They did like 8 or 9 of the Desert Session cds that were a conglomerate of band members of Kyuss and QOTSA along with some of their cohorts. That said song was called "I Wana Make it Wit 'Chu", suprisingly enough that song is about f!*kin. Its also one of my favorite songs of theirs that they polished and put out on their 5th cd called "Era Vulgaris". This cd went back to the better side of the Queens; just great rock songs.

They are not for everybody and its hard for me to tell you where in their catalog to start but i hope this post might give you a small morsel of info. Certainly check out the reviews and descriptions on cdnow or anywhere else you find info about cds. Or ask me anything specific you want, ill try to help. Not that im an expert, but im just sayin..
