Josh Homme and Julian Casablancas’ Mutual Admiration

by Eric Van Dril · 14 comments

I’ve been listening to a lot of Queens of the Stone Age lately and, if you’re at familiar with the band, this is going to be the stupidest post you’ll ever read. So just stop now.

If not, then you have no idea that Julian sings backing vocals and plays the synth guitar on
“Sick, Sick, Sick”.

It’s not news, but it’s a way to kill five minutes of your time and make me feel like I’m not neglecting the Strokes even though I’ve been listening to them non-stop over the last two weeks. Anyway, Julian can be heard at the 2:35 mark.

To return the favor (or the other way around), QOTSA and Them Crooked Vultures frontman Josh Homme played drums on The Strokes and Eddie Vedder’s remix of Marvin Gaye’s “Mercy, Mercy Me”.

If you haven’t heard this, have fun. If you have, then let me apologize again.

I didn’t know Homme played the drums on their Mercy Mercy Me cover. That’s news to me. Strokes related news! So no apologies necessary for the post. It served its purpose.

so ‘ol shit here, no news, just a regurgitation on someone else’s news. Just begin all your post with “No news for Strokes fans, I copied this from a Strokes fan. To all you 13 year olds:”

@joe – I find your sense of entitlement amusing. I’d argue with you, but I don’t care. Go fuck yourself.

i don’t understand his point at all… “To all you 13 year olds:” what is that supposed to mean?

Anyways… you mayhave done this on your old site but we should take a poll – favorite B-Side/ non album recording.

I don’t either, I for one am pretty damn offended.

I’m not a “13 year olds”, I’m 11.

13 is over the hill.

Jules also plays the spooky synth guitar on “Sick, Sick, Sick.” I’d love to hear Jules work with Dave Grohl, as the two seem to be friendly. Scroll waaaaay down on this page and you’ll see a pic of Julian and Grohl.
