Josh Homme, Alison Mosshart and more have marked the second anniversary of Anthony Bourdain’s death by posting tributes to the late US chef.
Bourdain took his own life at the age of 61 on June 8, 2018. He was in Strasbourg, France at the time filming for the Netflix series Parts Unknown.
Earlier today, Queens Of The Stone Age‘s frontman Homme took to Instagram to share an image of himself and Bourdain which he captioned: “I miss you.”
The Kills‘ singer Mosshart, who made an appearance in a 2016 episode of Parts Unknown, shared black and white photo booth snaps of herself and the late star. “I miss your boots on the ground AB,” she captioned the post, before signing off with the black heart emoji.

Today marks the anniversary of the death of my friend @anthonybourdain. I was in my hotel room and I got a text from my friend Maynard Keenan. We had joked about the two of them having a celebrity Jiu Jitsu match since they were both serious enthusiasts. He let me know Tony was no longer with us and then I looked it up online and spent most of the morning in this surreal kind of shock. I really admired Bourdain, and I couldn’t imagine that a guy like him would ever get to the point where he would want to take his own life. I just thought he was one of the coolest people alive and that his perspective and insight would navigate him through the most difficult of waters that many people encounter in life. To this day I’ll think about him and wonder if I could have steered him into a better place if I was around during his last day. This cool piece of art by @dennystocke hangs in my studio and I think about that every time I pass it.
Podcast host Joe Rogan, meanwhile, wrote of his admiration for Bourdain in a lengthy Instagram message alongside a portrait of the chef that adorns a wall of his studio.
“I just thought he was one of the coolest people alive,” he wrote, “and that his perspective and insight would navigate him through the most difficult of waters that many people encounter in life.
“To this day I’ll think about him and wonder if I could have steered him into a better place if I was around during his last day.”
