Josh Homme Kicks a Concert Photographer in the Head
Josh Homme went on a bit of a kicking jag during a show in LA on Saturday night. Lights, gear, a photographer. Oops.
The photographer at the end of Josh’s boot was Chelsea Lauren, on assignment for Shutterstock which has a license with Variety. Here’s how the magazine quoted her:
“Josh was coming over and I was pretty excited, I’ve never actually photographed Queens Of The Stone Agebefore, I was really looking forward to it. I saw him coming over and I was shooting away,” she said. “The next thing I know his foot connects with my camera and my camera connects with my face, really hard. He looked straight at me, swung his leg back pretty hard and full-blown kicked me in the face. He continued performing, I was startled, I kind of stopped looking at him, I just got down and was holding my face because it hurt so badly.” Eventually she returned to the press room, where a rep from KROQ in the press room received a text from an audience member asking, “Did the guitarist for Queens Of The Stone Age kick a photographer in the face?”
Josh responded with this.
