Musical career

Dalle began playing guitar at 13 years old. [2] At the age of 14, Dalle joined a band called Sourpuss. They played at Australia's Summersault Festival where she met Tim Armstrong, frontman of punk rock band Rancid. The two pursued a relationship. Armstrong is 14 years her senior and Dalle initially lied about her age but the couple got engaged shortly after Dalle turned 18. She moved with Armstrong from Melbourne to Los Angeles, California and there founded The Distillers.

The Distillers released their eponymous debut album in 2000, receiving acclaim and comparisons to Hole, with Dalle often compared to Courtney Love. By the recording of their second album Sing Sing Death House the band had a new lineup and by the time of their third album Coral Fang Dalle was then the only remaining original member. The band experienced success with several singles from the album and performed at Lollapalooza.

After the breakup of The Distillers, Dalle began work on a new project called Spinnerette with Alain Johannes of Eleven. On December 11, 2008, the band released their first EP entitled Ghetto Love, with an accompanying video directed by Liam Lynch. A full-length album was released June 17, 2009.[3]

Dalle has also played on many albums for the band Eagles of Death Metal under various monikers and appeared on the track "Weigh on My Mind" on The Transplants' debut album in 2002. She has also made vocal appearances on Queens of the Stone Age's "You Got a Killer Scene There, Man" on their 2005 album Lullabies to Paralyze and "Make It wit Chu" on 2007's Era Vulgaris; and also an appearance on Leftöver Crack's song "Muppet Namblin" from their 2004 album "Rock The 40 Oz: Reloaded". In 2009, she made an appearance in the same song as her husband Josh Homme for the first time on "Bargain Healers" from the French artist Nosfell on his self-titled album.

Personal life

Dalle married Tim Armstrong, frontman of Rancid, in 1997 when she was 18. Dalle and Armstrong divorced in 2003. After they divorced, Brody reverted to using the surname of her favorite actress, Béatrice Dalle, best known for Betty Blue.

Dalle is now married to Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme, since 2007. They had their first child, Camille Harley Joan Homme, on January 17, 2006, and live in Los Angeles, California.
