Interview: Dean Fertita (Queens of the Stone Age)

Monday 3rd March, 2014 3:41PM

Best known these days as the keyboardist and sometimes guitarist in Josh Homme's monolithic stoner rock ensemble Queens of The Stone Age, American multi-instrumentalist Dean Fertita came up as a musician playing with The Waxwings, Brendan Benson and The Raconteurs before joining Queens of The Stone Age in 2007. Alongside his membership in Queens, Dean also plays in The Dead Weather, Eagles of Death Metal and maintains his own solo project. Several weeks before Queens of The Stone Age's highly anticipated return to New Zealand alongside Nine Inch Nails Martyn Pepperell spoke with Dean. Friendly, thoughtful and generous, he told me about the relationship between Nine Inch Nails and Queens, how he joined the band, and what it's like to play in. Dean also offered up his thoughts achieving success as a musician later in life.
