Queens of the Stone Age pay tribute to chef Anthony Bourdain


Queens of the Stone Age have paid their respects to the late chef Anthony Bourdain the only way they know how. The death of chef Anthony Bourdain affected the music world much more than most culinary figures could. His intrinsic connection to the music scene can be felt throughout the industry as many gathered alongside QOTSA, Iggy Pop and more to mourn the star.

The ‘Parts Unknown’ presenter was found dead on Friday while filming an episode in France. The band performed their Lullabies to Paralyze song ‘Long Slow Goodbye’ during their set at Denmark’s NorthSide Festival in memory of him. “Sometimes you lose somebody,” Josh Homme, said to the crowd. “And today we lost somebody, so this song is for Tony.” Watch the performance below (it begins around the 46:00 mark).

QOTSA join Obama, Iggy Pop, Questlove, and many more in mourning Bourdain. “Dammit Tony. I’m so sorry. I’m so destroyed,” the band posted to Twitter. The group and Homme in particular were long tie friends with the chef and even created the theme song for his ‘Parts Unknown’ show.

RIP Tony.
