HitsDailyDouble.com caught up with Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme and asked him for his thoughts on file sharing. “I’m in a band that has Stone Age in the title you know, so I’m kind of behind the times,” he admits. “At the same time, we allow people to photograph, or audio and videotape the shows. We encourage live music sharing, because for a band that is just starting out, it’s a great way for you to present your music for free. But with something like Songs for the Deaf to have people just come and take it, because we spent so much time and a bit too much money making it, it’s kind of a slap in the face to us. I don’t go into a 7-11, take a couple of dollars out of the cash register, then help myself to a Slurpee and split. If people had the tables turned on them in that respect, they’d understand. So I have a mixed perception. Sharing music is good. Stealing music is bad.”
