Rage Against the Grammys
Add Queen’s of the Stone Age’s Josh Homme as someone who didn’t appreciate this year’s Grammys. The singer took time during a recent live show in Houston, to share his feelings on this year’s Grammy awards. Homme said that not every place is a good place and prepared to perform “I Appear Missing” from their Grammy nominated album … Like Clockwork. The singer said this song is by “Imagine Dragrons” … Homme then jokes about the imagery of the pop-rock band’s name. Imagine Dragons beat out Queens for Best Rock Performance. That, along with their joint performance with Nine Inch Nails being cut off for promotional considerations must’ve not set well with Homme because just before bursting into the song Homme said “Fuck the man, fuck Imagine Dragons, fuck the Grammys.” And the crowd applauds. Just moments after the Grammys earlier this year, Trent Reznor from Nine Inch Nails sent a big proverbial middle finger to the awards show for disrespecting music. Meanwhile, Queens will be at the Aragon Ballroom in Chicago May 9th. Presale is on now. Public sale is Friday.
Promoting their documentary
Lamb of God will be making the rounds … no, not a tour to play music but rather they’ll be hitting up various shows to promote their new documentary. The band will be on VH1 Classic’s That Metal Show to talk about their documentary As The Palaces Burn. That appearance is February 22nd. The film will being on the big screen in over 25 countries February 27th. You’ll be able to see it at the Ginger Man Tavern in Chicago and in Missouri you can hoof it to Warrensburg to get to the Carmike 10 theater. A broader release for home theaters is expected shortly thereafter.
Get it on iTunes
If you dug the performance of Metallica’s “One” that aired on the Grammy Awards this year, it’s now available on iTunes. The band hooked up with world renowned pianist Lang Lang for the performance, which had guitarist Kirk Hammett and Lang trading time during the song’s solo portions.
