While in Chicago a couple of weeks ago for Lollapalooza, Queens of The Stone Age‘s Josh Homme sat down with “Sound Opinions’ Greg Kot and Jim DeRogatis for a wide ranging chat ; we’re not sure how so many other major media outlets spaced on the Medieval Times story, but their loss is your gain. You can hear the full interview here, or if you prefer, tonight at 8pm central on WBEZ (or via any of the affiliate stations carrying the program).
