Details of Queens Of Stone Age and the Ticket Luck value
Queens of the Stone Age, also known simply as the Queens, are a rock band from Palm Desert, California, USA, formed in 1997. The band was originally named Gamma Ray by founder and guitarist Josh Homme. The band's music has a riff-oriented, heavy rock style, which Homme describes as 'robot rock'. The band's music is also frequently described as stoner rock, although the Homme rejects this term saying it sucks The only element of the audience I want to get rid of is the shirtless, sweaty, maxi-mullet jock dudes. We want sex to bleed into the music. At our shows, we want to see half boys and half girls in a utopian world, dancing and drinking.
Queens of the Stone Age was formed by guitarist Josh Homme in 1996. Homme originally named the band Gamma Ray but was forced to change the name to 'Queens of the Stone Age' in 1997 as a German power metal band with the same name threatened to sue.The band's first release was a two track LP titled Gamma Ray in 1996. This featured Joshua Homme (Kyuss), Matt Cameron (Soundgarden), Van Conner (Screaming Trees) and John McBain (Monster Magnet). The band made its debut live appearance much later in November 1997, at OK Hotel in Seattle, Washington. In December 1997, the band released a split EP titled Kyuss/Queens of the Stone Age, which was the first official release by the band under its new name.
In 1998, Queens of the Stone Age released their self-titled debut album through Loose Groove records. The same album was also released on vinyl by Man's Ruin Records. The album was recorded with Hommes on both guitar and bass guitar, Alfredo Hern?ndez on drums and several other instrumental and vocal contributions by Chris Goss and Hutch. After recording their first album, Queens was joined by new band members - former Kyuss bassist Nick Oliveri and guitarist Dave Catching and shortly after commenced their tour. The band's line-up continued to change frequently and by the time recording of the second album Rate R commenced, Hern?ndez had left the band.
Songs for the Deaf (2001 2004)
Frequent touring to promote their second album Rated R generated increasing popularity for the band. Support for the band grew yet further when Foo Fighters frontman and former Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl joined in late 2001/early 2002 to record their third album titled Songs for the Deaf. This album featured former Screaming Trees vocalist Mark Lanegan, as well as former A Perfect Circle guitarist Troy Van Leeuwen who also joined the touring line up following the album's release. Although Songs for the Deaf gained considerable popularity, Grohl eventually became more involved in his other projects and was replaced by former Danzig drummer Joey Castillo who became a full time member of the band.
Lullabies to Paralyze (2004 2006)
In 2005, Homme along with multi-instrumentalist Alain Johannes, and existing band members Van Leeuwen and Castillo recorded the band's fourth studio album titled Lullabies to Paralyze. The title was taken from the lyrics of the track "Mosquito Song" from their previous album. The release of the fourth album featured a number of guests, most notably Billy Gibbons from ZZ Top.
The release featured the appearance of several guests, most notably ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons and Marl Lanegan. Lanegan although reportedly turned down an offer to join the band on a permanent basis, recorded several vocals for the album including the solo vocals for the opening track This Lullaby. He also toured with the band on and off to promote the album.
