Queens of the Stone Age’s Josh Homme Throws Fan Off Stage [VIDEO]

In an age where Dimebag Darrell got murdered by a fan that rushed the stage, it’s probably not the best idea to try to get on stage during a concert. But people still try. You had the poor kid that got killed after trying to get on stage at a Lamb of God concert, and now we have another douchebag rush the stage at a Queens of the Stone Age concert.

Singer Josh Homme’s response? Epic.

At a show in Florida on Tuesday night, a fan jumped on stage. The fan went to Homme and grabbed him as the musician was playing piano during “The Vampyre of Time and Memory” from the band’s “…Like Clockwork” album.

Homme immediately reacted. He grabbed the fan and as soon as he had control over the guy and tossed him into the crowd. (I should mention that Josh is 6’4″ and probably somewhere in the neighborhood of 180 pounds — in other words, not the best guy to mess with.)

When he got back to the mic, he had this to say:

Don’t do that…I don’t care if you love me.  You can stand right there, dude.  I don’t know what you’re trying to do.  You’re lucky I didn’t fuck you up.  I’m here to play for you, not jerk you off, you fucking douchebag.  He’s the luckiest guy in here, because I all wanted to do was kick his ass…You can tell I’m getting more mellow as I get older.

You can watch a video of the incident below. It happens around the 1:10 mark.
