Earlier this week, MTV aired a Soundchain with Zane Lowe episode that starred Queens of the Stone Age’s Josh Homme.
Taking to the traditional acoustic setting of a church (obviously), Homme was asked to perform an acoustic version of ‘Long Slow Goodbye’, taken from QOTSA’s ‘Lullabies To Paralyze’. It makes for something pretty special.
Zane himself looks close to tears at one point, he’s so struck by the thing - sitting directly next to Homme for the whole performance, he begins with customary head-nodding before resembling someone at the confession booth, hands locked together, beginning to question everything. It’s pretty deep.
Another conclusion to draw from this: Josh Homme would make one hell of a vicar.
