Rock legend Josh Homme has revealed that he no longer has cancer and shared how the experience has helped him through a truly rough four years.
Speaking to ITV, the Queens Of The Stone Age frontman said he’s “all-clear” from the disease. Back in June, he shared that he was diagnosed last year, so it's great to hear he's already fully recovered.
On top of the illness, Homme has also been through a divorce and the loss of close mates over the past few years. Shockingly, the rocker revealed he’s somewhat grateful for all the shittiness.
“I don’t look at the fact that a lot of people near me have passed away - nine people in the last year and a half,” he said. “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. I’m sort of thankful for it all at the end because I feel closer to the things that I truly love.”
While he obviously has a great mindset, Homme also shared that family has been huge for him.
“It’s the kids that have made me feel better. Whether they’re out in the crowd or in my own home. I feel the best I’ve felt all year.”
“I've lost band members and things like that to cancer. And it's not just about cancer, it’s just things. 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."
What a bloke he is.
