Launch Radio Networks reports: QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE frontman Josh Homme had some less than flattering things to say in London about THE ROLLING STONES, for whom his band opened last year. Homme said that he felt the STONES were putting out albums these days merely to promote their tours. The singer and guitarist explained, "We played with them and I totally enjoyed it. It was great to see. But they only put out albums to remind people they're going on tour. For me it's about creative output. They only go on tour so people can hear their older songs. If I understood that was happening to us, I wouldn't hesitate to take a long break."

Homme also revealed this week that he's become friends with the WHITE STRIPES recently, saying, "I've met Jack (White) a few times, but I think I've spent more time doing drunk karaoke with Meg (White). She lives in L.A. too. We haven't done a duet yet, but I sing Roy Orbison's 'In Dreams' and a lot of Britney Spears." The two groups played a London festival together on Thursday night (June 14).
