Redheads have given much to the devil’s music, as you’ll realise if you consider the contributions of Axl Rose, the Biffy brothers and Courtney Love (trust us, she is – we’ve asked around). Others – see Mick Hucknall – ARE the devil.
QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE, of course, have their own ginger-noggined superhero in Josh Homme – and doesn’t he wear it well. For a heavy metal band, QOTSA don’t half know how to write a damn good pop song, as the enduring appeal of Feel Good Hit Of The Summer, Lost Art Of Keeping A Secret and No One Knows proves.
Since strip-happy bald bassist Nick Oliveri (not a natural ginger) quit the band in 2004, things have gone a bit awry musically but the Californians are guaranteed to put on a blinding show when they hurtle into town and corrupt all our women. Jackie Bird, you have been warned.
