Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme discussed Faith No More and Mike Patton in a new Alligator Hour on Apple Music with Colin Hanks.

Consequence of Sound reports that Homme starts talking about his love for Faith No More’s 1995 album, King for a Day … Fool for a Lifetime, saying, “The reason I love this album is because at this point in Faith No More, Faith No More exploded. See, I toured with them when I was 19 and … Mike Patton was a big influence on shaping some of my outlook, because they had done really well, but it was really uncomfortable for him to do so well.”

He continues, “And so as a as a kid that grew up on all punk rock, coming from the desert, it was like, do well, but don’t do too well — that punk rock guilt … but watching Mike Patton do these crazy … like choke down an eight-inch dildo … or piss in a shoe and drink it during the show … and sing wonderfully at the same time and watch them pull apart the strings of success … trying to figure out how to navigate who he was because he was quite young, as well, at the time.”

Hanks then chimes in, “I always loved how … he was both sides of that coin… He had an amazing singing voice, a gorgeous voice, but then he would … destruct it, as well. ‘Let’s see how far I can tear these vocal cords of mine.’”

    King For A Day doesn’t get enough credit, it’s such a diverse album. Josh Homme describes Patton well- he’s an incredibly talented visionary who always likes to balance that out with unpredictability.

    Josh Homme almost joined FNM after King for a day album when they were auditioning new guitarists

    Patton and Homme are pure class. Patton’s voice is even better now with age. The man is a true legend.

    Agreed that “King” is a great album. A close 2nd for me after “Angel Dust”. For sure, Patton is unpredictable.
