2009 - Them Crooked Vultures
Dingo loves the supergroup (Dingo is finagling a way to spend this NYE w/Royal Machines). Them Crooked Vultures is in a class all by itself...John Paul Jones of Led Zeppelin, Dave Grohl of Foo Fighters and that other band called Nirvana and Josh Homme of anything and everything cool coming out of the Cali desert.
1996 - Queens of the Stone Age
Another band formed out of the musical mecca that is the Coachella Valley, "Queens" is the brian child of Josh Homme and has included EODM alumni Dave Catching, Dave Grohl, and Alain Johannes! One might consider this is the band that gave birth to EODM.
2014-The Beta Machine
Playing with EODM on this current tour, Matt McJunkins has also lent his talents to A Perfect Circle, Puscifer and Thirty Seconds to Mars. His band, The Beta Machine, playing the Slidebar last year was our introduction to Matt and we've been hooked ever since.
Foo Fighters = Dave Grohl and the DG biography is essentially equal to all parts that connect the EODM twine. Toured or played with EODM, Queens of the Stone Age, earthlings?, and Them Crooked Vultures! Haven't seen him play with Beta Machine yet, but we're sure it'll happen in the near future!
From a relatively well known band from Palm Desert, CA that played kick ass rock and roll in medium size venues around the world - to a band that has become synonymous with the horrific events that took place in Paris on November 13, 2015 and the band that has and will inspire millions to
1997 - The Desert Sessions
As definitions go, one might not consider this a "band", but we'd be hard pressed not to include it in this list. Josh Homme gathered up an amazing group of musicions (including multiple EODM alumni) and said "GO!" They did, and the results are absolutely fascinating!
Dingo isn't normally at a loss for words, but after watching the Vice interview with Eagles of Death Metal about their ordeal at The Bataclan, there is a distinct absence of words. Only tears. One of Dingo's highlights of October's Beach Goth was the rambunctious set by EODM on The Graveyard Stage. What an innocent time that was. Now, we're all just picking up pieces in our own way. To that end, Dingo's going to try to pick up pieces by featuring the numerous parts that make up the whole, known as Eagles of Death Metal. To correctly quote Gestalt psychologist Kurt Koffka, "The whole is other than the sum of it's parts." Dingo thinks that is an apt description of the legacy that is EODM.
