“I think one of the coolest things you can do is disappear for a while, because it gives you the chance to re-emerge. To sort of pounce out of the jungle.” – Josh Homme
What Josh Homme means is that recharging your batteries and finding inspiration again is something we all need from time to time. If you go on for too long in your daily routine, you lose your appetite in what you do and you get bored and possibly burned out or even depressed. Take some time for yourself and you will come back rejuvenated and full of great ideas and plans for the future.
Sometimes it is good to take a break and question what you are actually busy with. Is it really something you like doing? Where is it leading to and what do you actually want to achieve with it? Take a step back and decide in all tranquility what you want to do moving forward. When you have that clear goal in front of you, you will feel reborn and everything you will do will have meaning to you.
Josh Homme was born in 1973 and is the founder of rock band Queens of the Stone Age. Little Sister, No One Knows and Go With The Flow are just some of QOTSA’s many hits. Homme sings and plays different instruments. He has a unique guitar playing style, because he did not learn of a barre chord, nor of a plectrum until after a couple of years practice. Besides Queens of the Stone Age, he also plays in bands like Eagles of Death Metal and Them Crooked Vultures, where Dave Grohl from the Foo Fighters plays the drums. In 2011, Homme won a Grammy Award for Best Hard Rock Performance with Them Crooked Vultures for the single New Fang.
