There is a joke that gets passed around between my friends and fellow music makers that usually starts with an Instagram or Facebook photo of high-quality synthesizers, sequencers, or other non-guitar instruments and a caption that reads, “guitars are dead.” What inevitably follows is a long and laughable string of comments from the legions of rock lovers who must stand up in defense of the all-powerful six-stringed instrument that has been a mainstay in music for as long as any of us can remember.

Josh Homme Says His Guitar Solos Are Nonsense

Frontman for Queens of the Stone Age, Josh Homme, recently stated in an episode of the Noisey series, Guitar Moves, that his guitar solos are mostly nonsense. “Guitar solos to me, should be a really articulate way to make fun of guitar solos. My guitar solos [have] gotten to nonsense and sometimes they sound like nonsense, but they’re played on purpose.” Watch the video that finds Homme discussing ZZ Top, the “two Jimmys,” and his thoughts on guitar solos after the jump.
