Does this excite anybody else as much as it excites me? Rock might still be relevant, man.
Do you think it'll be more Iggy-sounding or Josh-sounding, musically speaking? I think since Josh is working with guys he's worked with before it'll be Homme-esque but we'll see.
Based on past stuff like them crooked vultures and his song in the sound city soundtrack I would guess it's a nice blend. In those you could definitely tell he had an influence, but it didn't take over a whole track necessarily. I certainly wouldn't mind more of an iggy sound though, it'd be cool to see Josh doing stuff he hasn't really done before.
>we will never have a new QotSA record that has a Lanegan vocal led song on it
>better than Mark did
Well sure by default because Mark never sang Millionaire. That was Nick who sang it. I think you're thinking of A Song for the Dead.
>"Autopilot" proves that Mark's vocals can work really well for certain Queens stuff
That was Nick who sang that one, too. The only song on Rated R that Lenegan sang was In the Fade.
I think it's bretty gud, excited to see what the rest of the record will sound like
Josh and Iggy collaborating makes sense though. Plus Josh has been great lately. Lulu didn't work because it was an old art rocker collaborating with a washed up thrash metal band. It was like mixing peanut butter and ketchup.
Agreed. Josh's voice is nice on Millionaire.
Comparison for those curious.
Lulu is underrated desu. Everyone acts like it's the worst thing ever but Lou Reed and Metallica have made far worse. Hell, I would argue it's better than everything Metallica has made within the last twenty years.
It's hard for me to say one is better than the other. They're two different versions as far as I'm concerned.
I don't know if Iggy counts as dadrock. Especially not compared to Billy Gibbons, who Josh had on ...Like Clockwork if memory serves, and that was a great record.
>Josh had on ...Like Clockwork
No, Billy Gibbons was on Lullabies for 'Burn the Witch'. Elton John was on ...Like Clockwork, but that's a bit of a different thing.
Step it up, senpai. It's okay though, you don't need to go full autist like me just because you enjoy a band.
Anyone heard the episodes of Loveline with QOTSA on them? Quite entertaining.
There was a girl who called in complaining that her boyfriend wouldn't have sex with her because he couldn't stop playing Diablo. Heh. I can't blame him.
>Oliveri wanted to rejoin QotSA when he heard Dave Grohl was replacing Joey for ...LC
>Josh told him to fuck off after letting him do inaudible vocals on 'If I Had a Tail'

>Why wont Josh let Nick back?
He beat his wife, and despite Alain Johannes, Troy, and Josh taking turns on Lullabies, he wasn't worth the trouble to bring back. Then Mikey comes along and shuts down that talk by not being a fuck up.
Homme doesn't have nearly the energy that Nick brings to songs like Millionaire.
Nick sounds crazy and unhinged (because he pretty much is), while Homme's only mode is sexy croon.
Homme works for a lot of songs but the best era was when he had singers that could do shit that he can't. It's no coincidence;
It's pretty great.
I still really like the Nick version but I will say that the fake stop, towards the end, felt a lot more natural in the original (desert sessions) version. Also, overall desert sessions has the loose, lower-fi vibe, much like the first, and arguably best, Queens album, which I like.
He didn't play bass on Era Vulgaris. That was still Josh, Alain, and Troy.
Not gonna lie, I've had it in my head all day now. It really stuck with me. Might be my 2nd or 3rd favorite Iggy Pop song, but I wouldn't call myself a fan, just someone who appreciates some of his songs.
Holy shit this. It has a couple of amazing tracks on it. The lyrics got shit because plebs wanted "badass" Metallica lyricism and instead got abstract Lou Reed type of stuff. Also, the lofi gives it a nice touch.
