Chris Goss is an American record producer and musician, who is not only known for his work on albums by Kyuss and Queens of the Stone Age, but also as the frontman of desert rock band Masters of Reality. "There’s a bunch of weirdos that I work with all the time, and we make what I call 'out of whack' Rock records. That’s what I do. When people want an 'out of whack' weird Rock record, they call me, and I take an 'out of whack' amount of money to do it, and I’m glad to be there. It’s cool." (Chris Goss in 2004 about his work) In late 2004, Chris Goss had to be hospitalized because of severe internal infection and the European leg of his tour in support of his new Masters of Reality album Give Us Barabbas had to be postponed indefinitely. After his recuperation, he joined Jeordie White and Zach Hill to release I Got a Brand New Egg-Laying Machine, a "mini LP" released under the name Goon Moon. Goss appeareed with his long time friend Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Age as "THE 5.15ers" at the "winter edition" of ArthurFest, performing an intimate set which was "crafted in less than a month as the duo was a rather late addition to the Arthurball line-up as Sunday's headliner".
