Josh Homme flaunts new ink
Josh Homme got tattoos to honor those he lost recently, including former Queens of the Stone Age bandmate Mark Lanegan, who died in February.
Lanegan was best known for his works as the lead singer of the grunge band Screaming Trees as well as a member of Queens of the Stone Age and The Gutter Twins.
His death was revealed in a Twitter statement on Tuesday (February 22nd) that said: “Our beloved friend Mark Lanegan passed away this morning at his home in Killarney, Ireland.”
“A beloved singer, songwriter, author, and musician he was 57 and is survived by his wife Shelley. No other information is available at this time. We ask Please respect the family privacy,” it continued.
Acorn Amps recently took the idea of a retro Peavey practice amp and put them into preamp/amp pedal that might just square the circle for musicians who have spent years trying to recreate Josh Homme’s elusive electric guitar tone.
The Solid State is a “full circuit recreation” of a Peavey Decade. Of course, the Decade we all know and love is a 10-watt practice amp with an eight-inch speaker – a compact combo that now fetches over 500 bucks online after being revealed to be Homme’s secret weapon with Queens Of The Stone Age. The Solid State, however, houses all this tone mojo in a standard 1590BB enclosure. The Solid State has a pair of output jacks, allowing you to use it as a preamp pedal, saucing your guitar amp’s sound and using the unit as a de facto overdrive or distortion pedal.
