Members of Queens of the Stone Age and Arctic Monkeys are long-time friends, which includes a history of collaborating on musical projects and performances.

Last Tuesday, fans got the chance to witness another great QOTSA and Arctic Monkeys collaborative moment, when frontman Josh Homme joined the Monkeys on stage at a show in Los Angeles. Homme produced Arctic Monkeys’ album Humbug, while frontman Alex Turner made an appearance on the last Queens’ album.
