Fans who attended The Raconteurs’ concert in Los Angeles on Friday night bore witness to the first on-stage collaboration between rock gods Jack White and Josh Homme. The Queens of the Stone Age frontman joined White’s Raconteurs for special encore performance of “Blue Veins”. Watch fan-captured footage below.
Last week, White appeared as a guest on Homme’s Alligator Hour radio show. The two larger-than-life rock figures engaged in a free-wheeling conversation that touched on a variety of different topics, including childhood memories, hipsters vs. hillbillies, mob mentality, click-bait journalism, the lack of an “anti-scene”, and more. You can replay the episode here.
As we now know, the episode also set the stage for Homme’s surprise appearance with The Raconteurs. Hopefully a more proper, recorded collaboration is also in the cards.
