@pcast ... So Josh homme had this band prior to qotsa. It was called KYUSS. The grooves in that band were intense. Bjork is the drummer for KYUSS, turns out the guy can compose and sing and play the guitar equally good. You should check kyuss out if you haven't yet. Gardenia, space cadet, demon cleaner, one inch man, thong song are few you could start with.
And chains, that band has had the biggest pact on my life probably. Love thatbmtv unplugged.
