Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme discussed recording with Dave Grohl in a new interview with BBC 6 Music, “We laugh the whole time. Dave will play something as a joke that’s ridiculous, something shouldn’t be put in the song. And just to make it funny, I’ll take it and say ‘No no no, you’re going to do that exact thing, but for a minute and a half … musically that translates really well sometimes.”

Homme also said that the Arctic Monkeys’ Alex Turner who appears on the new Queens of the Stone Age album, “one of the most talented songwriters and lyric writers that is out there.

    No Scrappy, he admitted that some of the best stuff comes from being relaxed and just messing around doing something fun or funny (as in unique and non-traditional).

    Whatever works, if it gets me more QofSa and Foo I’m a happy camper.

    Christine is right, music can be created from just goofing off and not taken life so seriously.
    That’s the secret to Dave Grohl making music at times.

    Totally true.. Thats how you get original stuff…

    Just look at RHCP… many of their main hooks were just funny parts made as a result of the band messing around… But it works…

    Look no further than Give it away.
