SFGate have up a new article reviewing a recent Queens of the Stone Age show in San Francisco, and they brought up Homme kicking photographer Chelsea Lauren’s camera during a Los Angeles performance in December to open the article. They mentioned that Homme was defiant during his on stage banter at the San Francisco show.
“It’s good to be f— up in San Francisco,” Homme crowed in one of his numerous, not always logical rants between songs.
He alternately appeared humbled (“This next song is about the time I went crazy,” he said, introducing “You Can’t Quit Me Baby”) and indignant about the latest twist in his story line.
“There’s no reason to be perfect,” Homme said at one point in the evening, following it later with another thought: “Safety is bull—. There’s no such thing as safety. … If you risk nothing, you get nothing.”
In his more lucid moments, Homme reminisced about playing at the Bottom of the Hill, growing up in a small town and the value of chasing your dreams.
“What I do love about San Francisco is that I can let loose and take my pants down,” he said, an illicit cigarette dangling from his bottom lip.
