Queens Of The Stone Age channel Amy Winehouse in London

Josh Homme reveals why he isn't going to 'Rehab'

Queens Of The Stone Age paid their own unique tribute to Amy Winehouse in London tonight (November 26).

The desert rockers’ UK tour arrived in Brixton Academy in front of audience that included recent US support band Arctic Monkeys and rumoured Desert Sessions collaborator Bobby Gillespie of Primal Scream.

The show – with support from The Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster – saw the California band show case songs from across their career, from current album ‘Era Vulgaris’ to their 1998 self-titled debut.

However while playing their hit ‘Feel Good Hit Of The Summer’ during the band’s encore, frontman Josh Homme also included a brief version of Winehouse‘s single ‘Rehab’, although he gave the song a suitably Queens Of The Stone Age feel.

Before charging into their own song’s climax, the band paused as Homme told the sold out audience: “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…” as Homme then burst into the song’s to refrain, loudly shotuing “C-c-c-c-c-cocaine!”
