Josh Homme Joins Red Hot Chili Peppers Guitarist At Show


Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme, former Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist Josh Klinghoffer, and Rage Against The Machine guitarist Tom Morello are amongst the big name set to perform at A Song For Joe: Celebrating The Birthday of Joe Strummer on Friday, streaming live online. The show is a benefit for #SaveOurStages.

Also set to appear are Bruce Springsteen, The Strokes guitarist Albert Hammond Jr., Beto O’Rourke, Bob Gruen, Bob Weir, Brian Fallon, Butch Walker, Cherry Glazerr, Craig Finn and Tad Kubler, Dave Hause, Dhani Harrison, DJ Scratchy, Dropkick Murphys, Eugene Hutz, Frank Turner, HR, Hinds, The Interrupters, Jesse Dayton, Jesse Malin, Jim Jarmusch, Joe Ely, Josh Cheuse, Lucinda Williams, Lyza Jane, Matt Dillon, The Strokes guitarist Nikolai Fraiture, Ray Gange, Richard Dudanki, Sara Driver, Shepard Fairey, Spider Stacy, and Steve Buscemi.

Josh Klinghoffer was fired by Red Hot Chili Peppers in December, with John Frusciante replacing him. Josh Homme has kept a low profile since Queens of the Stone Age ended their ‘Villains’ touring cycle, though he did revive ‘The Desert Sessions’ last year. Tom Morello was set to reunite with Rage Against The Machine for a tour this year, but that run has now been postponed to 2021 due to the worldwide pandemic.
