Josh Homme Slams Professional Autograph Vulture

Did you know that there’s a whole group of dudes whose sole purpose on life is to get autographs from famous people to push to that guy on Pawn Stars?

Well there is, and when one came a knocking after a Queens of the Stone Age concert looking for Josh Homme’s John Hancock, he tore the guy a new asshole. And TMZ got it on video.

[Ed. note: Another concert goer posted an update on Facebook with more info:]

Thought I’d say- I was at this in Detroit and was right next to Josh when this happened. TMZ cut out the angry comments made by the ‘fan’/autograph hound, and it’s unfair to Josh that they did that. Josh wasn’t signing autographs because there were obvious eBay sellers there (multiple items, lying to get stuff signed for their kids, etc), but he said he would take pictures with everybody. Suddenly, the autograph hounds weren’t interested. When Josh started taking pictures with people, the autograph hound (who talked about reselling the autographs while we were waiting outside) then said “do you know how much we made off you tonight”, which was a reply to Josh saying that he didn’t want anything ending up on eBay. Taking pictures with fans was generous, and I just thought I’d set the record straight!

Check out this unholy third degree burn below.

The only thing that could make this video any more satisfying is Josh Homme announcing a new Them Crooked Vultures album at the end. Beautiful.

More power to Josh. Professional autograph hounds are in the same class of s**t-stain as the paparrazzi. I’d be using a Sharpie to autograph this assholes’ forehead, and then encourage TMZ to run that aspect of the segment.
