It's clear that most Americans wanted Barack Obama as the country's next president. Not Jesse Hughes, lead singer of Eagles of Death Metal and punk rock's answer to Ted Nugent.
"I have a T-shirt that says Nobama," said the mustachioed rocker and obnoxious Republican just days before the election.
"Bottom line is, I want my money and my guns and I don't want to tell anyone what to do."
Ah, okaayyy. Anyway, Eagles of Death Metal hit the Mod Club today (Thursday, November 13). $24. 416-870-8000.
Does it bother you that the band is often considered just a side project of Queens of the Stone Age frontman (and Eagles of Death Metal drummer) Josh Homme?
Josh and I never treated it as side project. But I rode his coattails. I love his coattails. I painted myself camouflage colours to match his coattails. QOTSA are one of the best rock bands in the world, and being in a side project doesn't hurt my feelings.
So did rehab work?
It definitely did. I was able to take a break and relearn better habits. But I learned how full of shit people are. So they had to sell one house in the Hamptons to feed their addiction - that doesn't impress me. But if you left a baby at a crack house, you deserve to get hit with a hammer.
Have you been doing drugs since you left rehab?
I love drugs a lot, but I'm not doing them every day.
Would you ever run for office?
Absolutely. I'm going to Sonny Bono the shit out of this. But to be Sonny Bono I have to turn a talentless bitch into someone with a career.
