“That guy’s a kook, you know,” he told Canada’s CBC Radio 2, criticizing Jay Z and the strict security policies at his Made In America festival in Philadelphia. “He has his security frisking the bands on the way in… I just told (the security guard) ‘If you open up my bag, then we’re not playing, so I guess it’s up to you now to decide whether I’m playing or not…’”. He continued, “You shouldn’t frisk my guys, you should f**k off.” Queens of the Stone Age eventually played the festival post-security squabble, but appeared both “visibly and vocally frustrated” throughout their set.
However, fast forward a few months and it seems their little spat’s finally been put to rest. “We had a conversation, and I think we saw each other’s point of view pretty clear,” Homme recently told Rolling Stone (via Gigwise). “In fact, he told me his own family had a problem with security.”
There you have it, ladies and gents. Two music titans “hugging it out”.
