After details surfaced of Queens Of The Stone Age frontman Josh Homme kicking a female photographer in the face during the band's performance at KROQ Acoustic Christmas, new reports are claiming Homme kicked a light into the back of a security guard’s head during the band’s set as well.
Photographer Jeff Kravitz shared a photo on Facebook, with a caption explaining that Homme sent two people in the photo pit to the medic. One being Chelsea Lauren, and the other being a security guard who got a light kicked into the back of his head.
Read his message in full, as shared by ThePRP, below:
Josh Homme from Queens of the Stone Age sent two people in the photo pit to the medic last nite. One was photographer Chelsea Lauren who posted a video of getting kicked in the head that is just shocking in it’s casual approach to violence. The other victim was a security guard who got a light kicked into the back of his head. Never in all my years have I seen such a bully on stage. He also insulted Muse and sliced his own face open with a knife. When you have no talent you have to get attention by being a moron. He’s banned and this is the last time I will shoot him.
Homme previously issued an apology, saying: “I want to be a good man, but last night I definitely failed at that. That means I failed my friends and family as well. I never want them to feel ashamed of being around me or knowing me. So I apologize also to my bandmates, my mom and dad, my wife and brother, and my kids.
“I'm gonna have to figure out some stuff. Rock 'n' roll is a wonderful thing, it's supposed to save and help people, not mess them up.”
And since the incident, the BBC has suspended two episodes of its kids show Bedtime Stories, featuring the Queens Of The Stone Age vocalist.
