Josh Homme, Queens of the Stone Age frontman and frequent Dave Grohl / Iggy Pop collaborator, seems a nice enough guy but he wasn’t very nice in Detroit the other night when a fan asked him for his autograph.

I’m not sure what rubbed him the wrong way about this fan, who says he’s a teacher, but TMZ reckon he thought the guy was a professional autograph-hunter who was only getting his autograph so he could sell it afterwards.
Whatever the case, he completely rips the guy’s life apart on camera, calling him a “fucking loser”, amongst other things.
Pretty harsh, but I guess you could just put that down to ‘rock star’ behaviour? Not many true rock stars left who will take a shit on your head and emasculate you in front of the world just for asking for their autograph. Real rockers who drink whiskey 24/7 and will stub their cigarette out on your skin just for a laugh. You couldn’t get away with that in any other profession but when you’re an ageing rock star it’s fair game. Why even bother being one if you can’t call a fan a “fucking loser” from time to time?
Either way, nowhere near as bad as what DMX did to one of his fans at a petrol station on Easter Sunday.
