Little Sister – Queens Of The Stone Age – I couldn’t take their last album but this one from 2005 is a doozy at least until they go riff mental… their glam instincts would work for em if they left it… nice bridge – B+

Queens Of The Stone Age At Teragram Ballroom, Thursday September 10th 2015, Review

By Alyson Camus | September 12, 2015

They didn’t talk much, Josh was visibly touched by the loving demonstrations of the enthusiastic crowd, but he shouldn’t have, as only the most die-hard fans had probably managed to get a ticket. In any case, the time was for music and not talking, and they played the show with a formidable energy while dispatching their songs as if they were rockets sent to the moon. The band kept us on the edge of a hard rock cliff, showing us once again they are one of the greatest rock bands alive.

Queens Of The Stone Age At The Teragram Ballroom

By Alyson Camus | September 11, 2015

Last night, Queens of the Stone Age played a ‘secret’ show, announced at the last minute at the Teragram ballroom, a tiny place for them. I got the chance to get a ticket,and they were fantastic as usual, but being in the front, at Josh Homme’s feet is really a treat… And now I have all these ridiculously good pictures of these guitar gods! The last true rock stars….

It was 100ºF in the house, and I was melting in front of my phone, then, I almost went through and for some reasons Ticketmaster rejected my password?

My Best Concerts of 2014 (Part 2)

By Alyson Camus | December 28, 2014

Paul didn’t play the nostalgia vibe too much, of course there were plenty of old songs, but some new ones too, and his dynamism on stage and simplicity while talking to the huge crowd was so comforting. From my seat, he looked like a tiny ant at the bottom of the Grand Canyon, but he ignited the sea of people, and the sing-alongs were heart warming

Super Group Teenage Time Killers, Featuring Every Metal-Hardcore Band That Exists, To Release Album Soon

By Alyson Camus | December 25, 2014

From what I get, this sounds like a sort of live aid for metal-hardcore veterans without the aid, and of course the songs were recorded at Grohl’s studio 606 in the Los Angeles valley, on the famous Sound City mixing board, according to Kerrang

Queens Of The Stone Age At The Forum, Friday October 31st 2014

By Alyson Camus | November 3, 2014

The delivery was so fluid and was running like the easiest thing these men have ever done, Josh was balancing with his guitar, swinging so smoothly, managing to use his best falsetto over heavy music, mixing danceable rhythms with testosterone-charged metal action.

QOTSA's Josh Homme Speaks,… But Not To Us

By Alyson Camus | October 27, 2014

QOTSA has been called by Trent Reznor ‘the best rock band in the world’ that ‘could kick your ass if you ran into them in a bar somewhere’, and a lot has been made of Homme’s Elvis-Presley-like charisma

Watch QOTSA's Going Bad New Video For 'Smooth Sailing'

By Alyson Camus | April 10, 2014

Josh Homme is a hard working man, is there a moment when he and his band have stopped touring this year? I am not sure and they even have announced new dates to this never ending Queens of The Stone Age world tour. But for now they also have a new video for the track ‘Smooth Sailing’ off their last album.

Queens Of The Stone Age’s Josh Homme Throws A Fan Off Stage During Concert

By Alyson Camus | February 13, 2014

Is The Song Dead As The Currency Of Modern Pop?

By Iman Lababedi | December 11, 2013

At the heart of so many 2013 big albums, is the lack of song, from Prism to Artpop, from New to Hesitation marks, from …Like Clockwork to Britney Jean, the lack of songs kills the albums in their tracks. They don’t get heard often enough and when and if you do give them the time they need to hit your pleasure button they don’t.

Watch Queens Of The Stone Age's Halloween-Theme New Video For 'Vampyre of Time and Memory'
