Josh Homme: Queens of the Stone Age guitarist revealed he was diagnosed with cancer last year in a new interview with Revolver Magazine published Monday.
“I never say it can’t get any worse. I never say that, and I wouldn’t advise it. But I do say it can get better,” he said, telling the outlet that he “gets the occasional twinge of pain” following the diagnosis.
Josh Homme added “Cancer is just the cherry on top of an interesting time period, you know? I’m extremely thankful that I’ll get through this, and I’ll look back at this as something that’s fucked up but will have made me better.”
“I’m cool with that. There’s a lot of stuff I want to do,” he added. “And there’s a lot of people I want to do that with.”
The Queens of the Stone Age frontman was diagnosed with cancer last year in June and has been recovering after successful surgery to remove the cancer. It’s unclear what type of cancer Josh Holm was suffering.
A few days ago he told ITV News “I had a little heartache, and I had a little of this and a little of that. But also I’ve never learned so much so quickly. So I’m sort of thankful for it all at the end because I feel closer to the things that I truly love.
“It’s OK to be broad and say, ‘Dark times come’, but I guess more than ever I’m just trying to look for the light, you know?” After a bitter legal battle, the musician provided final legal justice to his three children.
