People Who Would Know Talk About the Album
Dave Grohl
How did you end up on the new Queens Of The Stone Age album?

"I've known those guys for a long time. I was a huge fans of the first Queens album and
jokingly, when asked what was my greatest disappointment of 2001 I said that I hadn't been
asked to play on their record. So they were nice enough to ask when it came time to make
another record. One thing we have in common is a love of early Black Flag. In one of the songs
that we recorded - I think it's called 'Song For The Dead' there's a nod to an early Black Flag
record: the drum riff is me paying tribute to Bill Stevenson." - Dave Grohl, August 2001 issue of
about Mark Lanegan
Early last month, erstwhile Screaming Tree Mark Lanegan decided to join his pals in Queens of
the Stone Age for their current European tour, which kicks off Saturday (June 2) in the
Netherlands. According to Lanegan's then-manager Greg Werckman, the moody singer only
planned to sing a few numbers with the band, then pack up at the end of June and return to
L.A. to concentrate on a new project with former Afghan Whig Greg Dulli. But the plans have
changed. Not only has Lanegan engaged the services of new manager Brian Klein, but it now
appears that he's joined the Queens army for "at least a year," according to insiders. While no
one is saying whether he'll become a permanent member of the band, he will appear on the
band's next album, which it will begin recording in July. "It looks like Mark will sing three of four
songs, Josh [Homme] will sing three or four songs, and Nick [Oliveri] will sing two or three." -
