The rock band played at Jay Z's Made In America festival in Philadelphia earlier this month. Homme told CBC Radio 2, "That guy's a kook, you know. He has his security frisking the bands on the way in. I just told him 'If you open up my bag, then we're not playing, so I guess it's up to you now to decide whether I'm playing or not.'
"The idea they frisked all my guys, means you’re in some different place, no-one has ever done that."
Later, Jay Z gave the band a gift of champagne and told them to pose with the bottle - it was the rapper's brand of champagne. “He also gave us some champagne and wanted us to take a photo with it. And I thought, 'That’s not a gift that is a marketing tool.' So I destroyed it. Because I thought it was rude overall. And you shouldn’t frisk my guys, you should f--- off.”
Jay Z has yet to respond to the comments.
