Queens Of The Stone Age Pay Tribute To Amy Winehouse

Queens Of The Stone Age Pay Tribute To Amy Winehouse

[b]Queens Of The Stone Age[/b] paid a humourous tribute to troubled singer [b]Amy Winehouse[/b] at their London show last night (November 26).

Before the climax of live favourite 'Feel Good Hit Of The Summer', front man [b]Josh Homme[/b] paused and started to parody Winehouse's hit single 'Rehab' to the sell-out crowd which included [b]Primal Scream[/b]'s Bobby Gillespie and recent US tour support [b]Arctic Monkeys[/b].

Homme squeakily spoke into the microphone, saying: "They tried to make me go to rehab, and I said 'no, no, no'... because that's the kind of guy I am, baby. Rehab? We could hang out on the Thursday, but I'm so busy. I'm so busy with with... nicotine, valium, vicodin, marijuana, ecstasy and alcohol. We could hang out on Friday, but then there's the..."

"C-c-c-c-c-cocaine!"

The show, only the band's third in London this year, came just days after Winehouse's shambolic headline performance at the same venue on Friday (November 23).

QOTSA played several tracks from their fifth studio album 'Era Vulgaris' including an amazing version of new single 'Make It Wit Chu'.

They also played a handful of tracks each from their whole catalogue, Songs For The Deaf, Lullabies To Paralyze, Rated R, and their self-titled '98 debut.

The 35th Uncut Playlist Of 2014


Weird serendipities aplenty this week: versions of "O, Death" on two albums I downloaded one after another, by Mike & Cara Gangloff and Bessie Jones; dovetailing into Sea Island overlap between Jones and Loscil. It makes for a nice blurring between time and genre with, say, the Gangloffs...
