Josh Homme Starts Foundation For Disabled Musicians

(Radio.com) Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Age doesn't just rest on his laurels all day; he's actually a dedicated philanthropist whose latest venture finds him teaming up with members of Jimmy Eat World and Paramore to form The Sweet Stuff Foundation.

This charity helps provide assistance to musicians, recording engineers, and their families struggling with illness and disability, Consequence of Sound reports.

"The mission of The Sweet Stuff Foundation is to help our musical community and their families with the vital elements often overlooked during periods of illness and disability," its mission statement reads.

"Things like transportation to medical treatment, assistance with childcare and tuition, income assistance, the 'last wishes' of a lifetime, and special treatments not covered by insurance. The healing power of music is also a vital form of preventative medicine. That's why the Sweet Stuff Foundation's two prong approach is also committed to providing assistance for music lessons, instruments, and musical collaborations for children." Read more here.
