Bone Head Brewing Revered American Red Ale x Queens of the Stone Age - If I Had A Tail

"Ain't no confusion here, it is as I feared
The illusion that you feel is real
To be vulnerable is needed most of all
If you intend to truly fall apart"

Puns, common phrases and a dark-realistic look into life. Some of what you can expect from this record. It's the first album since Wasting Light by Foo Fighters where I thought, wow, this is a masterpiece.
I speak of other bands freely because Josh is not shy of leaning on his famous musician friends network for collaborations.
Josh was part of the heavy rock outfit, Kyuss, the new wave and boogie-influenced Eagles of Death Metal. Them Crooked Vultures, finds no less than one of Led Zeppelin and one of Nirvana acting as his rhythm section.
How the album got it's name:
Well, Josh died just before the recording. As he tells it, Homme emerged from a knee operation in 2010 in "a fog", having flat-lined and been brought back to life by a defibrillator.The fog didn't clear. The album progressed slowly. Homme and his drummer of 10 years, Joey Castillo, parted ways acrimoniously.
So named because it wasn't really going like clockwork, …Like Clockwork finds drummer Dave Grohl pummelling away for the first time since 2002's Songs for the Deaf. Significant cameos include previously ousted, now-forgiven bassist Nick Oliveri (on backing vocals), Alex Turner of Arctic Monkeys and Elton John, who told Homme the Queens needed an actual queen, and reduced Homme to the second biggest party animal in the room.Their group piece is Fairweather Friends, a resentful slow-burner in which Elton's piano has to hold its own. With this album, you'll be scrabbling for a lyric sheet because Homme seems so uncharacteristically unmoored. It's a classic album and a must listen.

Smells nice and floral with citrus notes, pine caramel and toffee. Tastes of malty sweetness balanced with hop bitterness. This rebel with a cause pairs with a burger, BBQ or QOTSA. Go for it!

Album - Queens of the StoneAge ...Like Clockwork
Highlight - If I Had a Tail
Gem - Fairweather Friends
