LIVE AT LETTERMAN FULL CONCERT WEBCAST 9:00 p.m. EST at http://www.cbs.com/shows/liveonletterman/

“…about a man at the border of life and death, with everything at stake, and that’s exactly how it sounds.”–THE NEW YORK TIMES

“Is there a more debonair dirtball in rock than Josh Homme? The Queens of the Stone Age <http://www.rollingstone.com/music/artists/queens-of-the-stone-age> frontman is the high priest of grimy rock tradition, exalting in exquisitely wrought guitar scraping and wry machismo… Yet for all his demon-steed drive, Homme’s a versatile guy – he coos as persuasively as he howls, and few can rain down metal decay with as much nuance and craft.”–ROLLING STONE

“…Like Clockwork is the soundtrack to the B movie of your dreams… Homme and his cohorts create merry hell as Lucifer’s house band.”–THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

“…does everything a good rock record should — wringing new blood from classic forms and sounding absolutely sexy and a little scary while doing it…

Homme is one of the few singers and lyricists today who know that rock ‘n’ roll is built on a mix of menace and dark humor, and almost every track on …Like Clockwork has a moment that makes you want to drive to Joshua Tree, pound some beers and start fires in the shape of pentagrams.”-THE LOS ANGELES TIMES

“kicks like a mule even when it dresses like a queen.”–PITCHFORK

“Surrendering to its strange charms could be one of the smartest decisions you make this year.”–ALTERNATIVE PRESS
