Queens of The Stone Age’s Josh Homme saw red after he believed a man seeking his autograph wasn’t a “real fan.”
because nothing happens in real life anymore without a camera rolling tape… Josh’s tirade at the memorabilia reseller was posted by TMZ.
Here’s some context posted to Stereogum’s Facebook by someone claiming to have been there.
UPDATE: One fan in attendance adds this context via Stereogum’s Facebook…
Thought I’d say- I was at this in Detroit and was right next to Josh when this happened. TMZ cut out the angry comments made by the ‘fan’/autograph hound, and it’s unfair to Josh that they did that. Josh wasn’t signing autographs because there were obvious eBay sellers there (multiple items, lying to get stuff signed for their kids, etc), but he said he would take pictures with everybody. Suddenly, the autograph hounds weren’t interested. When Josh started taking pictures with people, the autograph hound (who talked about reselling the autographs while we were waiting outside) then said “do you know how much we made off you tonight”, which was a reply to Josh saying that he didn’t want anything ending up on eBay. Taking pictures with fans was generous, and I just thought I’d set the record straight.
