“Sometimes, you lose somebody. And today we lost somebody, so this is for Tony,” Homme said before dedicating “Long Slow Goodbye” to Bourdain; the Lullabies to Paralyze closer is regarded as Homme’s ode to a lost friend.
Homme appeared on the chef’s Travel Channel series No Reservations in 2011 and, with Mark Lanegan, co-write the theme song to Bourdain’s CNN travel series Parts Unknown. “I’m heartbroken. @Bourdain was such a positive force in my life and so many others. A great friend and artist. What a sad fucking day,” Lanegan tweeted Friday.
