This falls in the I-like-the-cover-better-than-the-original category. Although, it could be because of my immense man-crush on Josh Homme. If you read this story on Homme and aren’t convinced of his coolness, then I don’t know what to say.
With a little prodding, Homme (rhymes with “mommy”) will admit he is still on probation after pleading no contest to two counts of battery against Blag Dahlia, the lead singer of a punk outfit called the Dwarves. It happened at the Dragonfly club in Hollywood three years ago; an incident Homme regrets not one iota. “I went there to attack and humiliate him,” he said. “That’s what I did.”
But what Homme, 34, who has the imposing physique of a longshoreman, standing nearly 6 feet 7 inches in his motorcycle boots, really wants to talk about is his new hobby. “Sewing is the best thing!” he exclaimed. “I can feel my heart rate going down when I do it. I forget everything else. It’s great when you’re on the tour bus.”
About his confrontation with Dahlia: “Everyone in this world deserves to be slapped – not too hard – and I hope they are, because it’s a great teaching tool.”
