The Desert Sessions would include musicians from Kyuss and Bjork to PJ Harvey and Dean Ween.Using the Sessions' revolving-door model for Queens' second album, 2000's , Homme brought in a new group of musicians including Kyuss bassist Nick Oliveri, who had been playing with the punk band the Dwarves.

The album kicked off with the stoner anthem "Feel Good Hit of the Summer," a driving punk-metal song in which Homme reels off a laundry list of drugs, from alcohol to marijuana to ecstasy., which featured the single "The Lost Art of Keeping a Secret" (Number 36 Mondern Rock) solidified Queens' reputation as one of the more adventurous acts in hard rock and won the band a slot on the 2000 Ozzfest tour.In 2002 ex-Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl joined Queens for , Homme and Oliveri co-wrote most of the songs.The revolving-door music collective Queens of the Stone Age, based around singer-songwriter and guitarist Josh Homme, was one of the most interesting and critically acclaimed hard rock bands of the 2000s.The band's eclectic approach to rock produced arty, blues-based albums that wandered stylistically from gentle acoustic songs and Delta blues stomps to Black Sabbath-like metal and the thick, sludgy garage rock characteristic of early-Nineties grunge bands.

When pioneering stoner-rock band Kyuss broke up after its 1995 album , Homme moved to Seattle to be the Screaming Trees' touring guitarist.Within a year Homme formed the grunge-metal supergroup Gamma Ray along with Soundgarden drummer Matt Cameron, Screaming Trees bassist Van Conner and Monster Magnet guitarist John Mc Bain.He changed the band's name to Queens of the Stone Age when a German metal band of the same name threatened to sue.For Queens' 1998 self-titled debut album, Homme recruited his old Kyuss band mate, drummer Alfredo Hernández, as well as Kyuss producer and Masters of Reality singer/guitarist Chris Goss and guitarist Dave Catching.The album didn't attract much mainstream attention but led to a deal with Interscope Records.Within the same post-Kyuss period Homme also initiated the Desert Sessions, a conceptual far-ranging music project featuring a changing cast of musicians spontaneously recording at a ranch in the Palm Desert area of California.
