Rocker Josh Homme was involved in a verbal altercation with an autograph hunter outside an afterparty in Detroit, Michigan.
Video footage taken outside the bash on Thursday night (07Apr16) shows the Queens Of The Stone Age frontman berating a man, who was reportedly waiting for an autograph, in an expletive-filled rant after he asked for a signature.
Homme became angry with the unnamed man for seeking his autograph, thinking he planned to sell it on for money, according to TMZ.com, but reportedly launched into his tirade when the man commented on the cost of official band merchandise and tickets.
According to the footage, taken by an onlooker during the middle of the argument, Homme says,"What the f**k do you do?" while angrily pointing at the man.

Rocker Josh Homme became a father for the third time just days before he returned to Paris, France to play with his band Eagles of Death Metal.
The Queens of the Stone Age star rarely performs with Eagles of Death Metal and was not present when his bandmates were playing the Bataclan concert venue on 13 November (15), when terrorists stormed the hall and opened fire on the audience, killing 89 fans.
The band headed back to Paris for their first full show in the city since the attack on Tuesday (16Feb16) with Homme on drums, and that evening, his wife Brody Dalle announced they had welcomed a boy named Wolf just days earlier on Saturday (13Feb16).
She posted a picture of the baby on Instagram.com and wrote, "Wolf Dillon Reece Homme born 2/13/16 8lbs 3 ounces 21 and 1/2 inches. Sending our love to Paris, my man and EODM (Eagles of Death Metal)."

Iggy Pop has hinted he is set to retire after wrapping up work on his new project with Josh Homme.
The veteran rocker has teamed up with the Queens Of The Stone Age frontman to produce a new album titled Post Pop Depression, and they are planning to head out on tour together after the record's release in March (16).
However, Iggy has sparked fears for his future in the music industry by declaring the project could be his last.
"I feel like I'm closing up after this..." Iggy tells Beats 1 presenter Matt Wilkinson. "That's what I feel. It's my gut instinct... If you call me and you want to work out a deal to come and sing 'Happy Birthday' at your mother's (house), something like that, I'll refer you to someone but to really make a real album you really have to put everything into it and the energy's more limited now."
Iggy Pop's Wife Ensured The Punk Rocker Didn't Expose Himself While Working With Josh Homme On Their New Album By Buying Him A Wardrobe Full Of Pyjamas.
The 68-year-old, who performs topless, typically sleeps in the nude and his wife Nina feared he would give Josh and the other members of their new supergroup, Post Pop Depression, a shock if he forgot to cover up while they were all holed up together at the Queens of the Stone Age's home in Joshua Tree, California last year (15).
"Before I made the trip, my wife was worried about that (his nakedness) so she bought me some pyjamas," he told U.S. talk show host Stephen Colbert. "She said, 'You don't want people there to see you walking around (naked).' I had some footed pyjamas and then I brought some French long johns as well - she chose them..."
Iggy wasn't the only one who benefited from the thermal sleepwear: "I shared those (long johns) with Dean (Fertita), the guitar player, so we bonded. He got into my long johns!"

Recorded in secret at the end of 2015, 'Post Pop Depression' will be out on March 18th, with a short tour planned for the same time.
Recorded in secrecy in both of Homme’s studios – one in Joshua Tree and the other in Pink Duck, Los Angeles – with the help of Arctic Monkeys’ drummer Matt Helders and Homme’s QOTSA bandmate Dean Fertita on guitars, Post Pop Depression is set for release on March 18th.
Speaking to the New York Times, Iggy said that the record’s themes were informed by his own advancing age and the idea of usefulness in modern society. “What happens after your years of service? And where is the honour?”

The punk icon reveals he and Homme started recording together at the beginning of last year (15) in secret and without a record label.
"We paid for whatever ourselves," he said, "but it was made to be heard - not to be some quirky thing that we did with our own money."
