Josh Homme Net Worth:
What is the net worth of Josh Homme?
The net worth of American rock musician, multi-instrumentalist, and record producer Josh Homme is $6 million. As the rhythm guitarist and main singer of the American rock band Queens Of The Stone Age, he is renowned.
Joshua Michael Homme III was born in Joshua Tree, California, on May 17, 1973. After seeing Carl Perkins perform at the Sandpoint Music Festival, he got his own electric guitar at the age of nine and began playing guitar. He took guitar lessons but struggled with his instructor’s teaching method. At age 12, Josh started his first band, Autocracy. Despite his success in early bands, he worked on his grandfather’s farm until the age of 25, when the first Queens of the Stone Age record was released.
At the age of 14, Homme created the punk rock/heavy metal band Katzenjammer in 1987. They went by Sons of Kyuss before settling on Kyuss as their permanent moniker. Early in the 1990s, the band acquired a cult-like following. The band released four albums after signing with a label: Wretch, Blues for the Red Sun, Welcome to Sky Valley, and The Circus Leaves Town.
Queens of the Stone Age was created in 1996 after Kyuss disbanded. Homme had relocated to Seattle, Washington in order to attend the University of Washington. During this period, he befriended musicians such as Ben Shepherd, Mike Johnson, and Mark Lanegan. After receiving a stop and desist injunction from a band with the same name, they renamed themselves Queens of the Stone Age.
Queens of the Stone Age created a distinctive brand of riff-based, hard rock music. After the publication of their self-titled debut album in 1998 and their sophomore album “Rated R” in 2000, the rock band entered the mainstream rock scene in the United States with the release of “Songs Of The Deaf” in 2002. It produced radio successes such as “No One Knows” and “Go With The Flow” and was lauded for including the drumming of ex-Nirvana member Dave Grohl. Josh and the band have subsequently released numerous additional albums, all of which have debuted in the top twenty of the Billboard 200.
The band’s sixth studio album, “Like Clockwork,” was released in 2013 to critical acclaim and topped the Billboard charts. Mark Ronson produced their seventh album, Villians, which was released in August 2017. The band performed “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road” on Revamp, an album of cover versions of well-known Elton John songs.
In addition to his work with Queens of the Stone Age, Josh has also established Eagles of Death Metal and collaborated with the Desert Sessions and Them Crooked Ventures, among others. He also established himself as a producer. The album “Humbug” by Arctic Monkeys was one of his most significant achievements as a producer of records for other artists.
Josh met Brody Dalle for the first time at Lollapalooza in 1996. His age at the time was 23. She was wed to Tim Armstrong, the lead vocalist of Rancid, at the age of 17. In 2003, after she had split from Armstrong, they reconciled. In 2005, they were formally wed. Currently, the couple has a daughter and two kids. Sadly, Brody filed for divorce in December of 2019. In her petition, she listed Josh’s alcoholism and substance misuse as grounds for the divorce. Afterward, he underwent treatment. Eventually, they both accused the other of domestic abuse and obtained separate restraining orders.
In September 2021, Orrin and Wolf sought restraining orders against Brody with the assistance of Homme. They claimed physical and psychological assault. However, two judges refused the request.
Due to his compromised immune system, Homme acquired MRSA following knee surgery in 2010 as a result of years of excessive drug addiction, frequent drinking, and relentless touring. The usage of a breathing tube that became lodged in Homme’s throat led to his choking and cardiac arrest. After he officially died for a few minutes, he remained bedridden for three months. Meditation is credited for aiding in his recovery.
In 2012, Josh and Brody purchased a property in the Hollywood Hills for $2.5 million. They listed the residence for $4.75 million in October 2020. They also own a Palm Desert, California property that they acquired in the 2010s for around $900,000 and listed for $975,000 in 2020.
Homme’s drinking and drug misuse struggles have been well-documented throughout his career. In 2004, he was arrested for hitting Blag Dahlia and Karl Doyle of the band Dwarves while intoxicated at the Los Angeles bar Dragonfly. A restraining order was issued against him, and he was sentenced to three years of probation and community service. In addition, he was ordered to undergo a 60-day rehabilitation program.
In 2008, Homme was captured on tape spewing homophobic insults in response to a member of the audience throwing a sneaker at him during the Norwegian Wood Festival in Oslo. In April 2016, he was criticized for an altercation with autograph seller Jason Leckrone. Leckrone filed a complaint for assault and violence against Homme. Homme was photographed throwing the camera of Shutterstock photographer Chelsea Lauren into her face during the KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas show in Los Angeles in December 2017. Homme disputed the event, claiming he was kicking lighting equipment and was unaware he kicked Lauren. She refuted his accusations, stating that he had made direct eye contact with her before to kicking her. He then expressed regret and acknowledged to having kicked her.
