Music Emissions would like to wish both Trent Reznor and Josh Homme a very Happy Birthday today, May 17th!
Reznor spent his birthday rehearsing for the live return of Nine Inch Nails, who will make their official comeback as a touring band on July 26th at Japan’s Fuji Rock Festival. Oh, and he also formally reintroduced Robin Finck as NIN’s bassist, replacing former Jane’s Addiction member Eric Avery (who announced his departure just the other day).
As for Homme, his Queens of the Stone Age continue to build towards June 4th, the day sixth studio album …Like Clockwork comes out. They’ve released an animated, apocalyptic-like video for “My God Is the Sun”, the song they debuted at Lollapalooza Brazil a little more than a month ago. It’s actually the fifth in a graphic novel-type series that has also included “I Appear Missing”, “Kalopsia” (which happens to feature Reznor as a collaborator), “Keep Your Eyes Peeled”, and “If I Had a Tail”.
So, what do you get for two rock stars who have everything? How about just cranking some of your favorite tunes from them for the rest of the day!
