Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme praised the fan, who was doing a crowd surfing at August 12's night of Sziget. What's interesting, you ask? The fan was disabled and he was doing the crowd surfing in a wheelchair.
Homme was so impressed, he dedicated the song "First It Giveth" to the fan, saying about him: "That's the baddest motherf--ker out there."
Speaking of the whole show, Homme was in a talkative mood that evening. For example, he took the opportunity during the instrumental break of "No One Knows" to tell the audience, "It's so f--king beautiful here." After "Feel Good Hit of the Summer" and "The Lost Art of Keeping a Secret" from 2000 breakthrough LP "Rated R," Homme described "Fairweather Friends" off last year's "...Like Clockwork" as "a song about everyone that isn't here."
The band, who return to the UK later this month to co-headline Reading and Leeds with Paramore, played a career-spanning set comprising songs from all their studio albums except 1998's "Queens of the Stone Age."
Earlier in the day, Brody Dalle opened the A38 Stage performing tracks from recently released debut solo album "Diploid Love." Before launching into "Sick of It All" by her former band the Distillers, she informed the crowd, who readily obliged: "I really like circle pits. Do you like circle pits? Let's do this!." Their youngest son Orrin Ryder Homme, who is on tour with Dalle and husband Josh Homme, celebrated his third birthday at the event.
