Queens of the Stone Age drummer Joey Castillo tells Beat magazine he does worry about the huge mobs that surround the band when it hits the road. “We are around and surrounded by so many people so often,” he explained, after discussing the Virginia Tech atrocity. “And I hope we never have to come cross anybody as crazy as the kind of people we’ve been talking about. It is very scary sometimes to be mobbed by fans and all you see is tonnes of faces and it does cross my mind ‘what if somebody did want to get at me… Then there’s the festivals. You can’t help but think the kids are supposed to be at a place where they are safe but you just don’t know. You just don’t know.”
