Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl spoke with BBC Radio One about getting back behind the drums again for Queens Of The Stone Age, for whom he last played drums on 2002's Songs For The Deaf. Grohl said about the group, "When you walk into a festival backstage with Queens Of The Stone Age, it's like, the record stops. People stop and they stare, and it's like Queens Of The Stone Age are, without question, the baddest rock and roll band in the world! And they still are, and whenSongs For The Deaf, when that came out, it blew people's minds, man, for real."
Grohl said about recording the sixth Queens album, "There were no boundaries with that band, there were no limits with them . . . I'll do something so completely ridiculous, I'll just, like, 'There's no way that that Josh (Homme, Queens mainman] is going to let me do that,' and he'll say, 'Do that for forty-five seconds, over and over again, that's become, like, part of the song, that is a big part of the song,' and that's the way they work."
