How Much Money Josh Homme Has In 2021? Is He Richest Member Of Queens Of The Stone Age?
Best known as being the founder, primary songwriter, and the only constant member of the band Queens Of The Stone Age, Josh Homme is a musician, songwriter, and record producer.

Homme’s former band Kyuss’ disbandment was followed by the formation of Queens Of The Stone Age back in 1996 and they released their eponymous debut album in 1998. Following that album, in 2000, the band released their next album named ‘Rated R,’ and used a wide range of instruments during the recording phase to achieve a more psychedelic and calm sound. The album later became their first mainstream hit although their next ‘Songs Of The Deaf’ in 2002 gained more attraction. Their successful fourth studio album ‘Lullabies To Paralyze‘ debuted at number 5 on the Billboard 200 and won a great appreciation while being the band’s best-charting album until this day.
After the release of their fifth album ‘Era Vulgaris’ in 2007, the band went on a hiatus to focus on solo projects which made Homme continue to make new music outside of the band. The hiatus became a six-year break and Homme worked with Them Crooked Vultures during that period. He also made music with other bands during his career along with Them Crooked Vultures, such as Eagles Of Death Metal, and was involved in a musical collective series called The Desert Sessions. Apart from these, Homme has also collaborated with several artists including Foo Fighters, Mastodon, Lady Gaga, and Arctic Monkeys. Being a producer as well, he produced the album ‘Humbug’ by Arctic Monkeys which was one of his most remarkable works.
