Standup comic, actor, co-host of The Bonfire, Dan Soder has followed an instinct to just ‘do cool shit’. His just ‘do cool shit’ idol is Josh Homme, frontman of Queens of the Stone Age.
We talk about how being uncool makes QOTSA the coolest band in the world, why Dan doesn’t care how many years it takes between Queens records, how Elton John talked Homme into letting him play piano on the album, the QOTSA song that could heal the divided America, how Josh Homme embraces ‘the Koppelman rule’ and what Dan’s dream QOTSA lineup would be.
