Queens Of The Stone Age frontman challenges U2 singer in the name of charity
Queens Of The Stone Age frontman Josh Homme has become the latest musician to take on the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge – and has challenged U2’s Bono to follow him.
Homme, who headlined Reading Festival with his band last weekend, uploaded the video to the QOTSA YouTube account earlier today. In the clip, which you can see above, Homme is doused in water before he can even get through the introduction to his challenge.
The ice bucket challenge is intended to raise awareness of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Individuals are challenged to have a bucket of ice poured over them and may then challenge other people to do the same. ALS is a terminal illness that causes muscles to weaken and stiffen.
Artists including Liam Gallagher, Arcade Fire, Rick Rubin, Kendrick Lamar, Drake, Lady Gaga (pictured), Iggy Azalea, Justin Timberlake and various others – as well as many members of the public – have joined in with the campaign.
Eminem recently took part in the charity fundraising and awareness craze with Rihanna onstage during a show in their co-headlining ‘Monster Tour’ in his home town of Detroit.
