Queens Of The Stone Age mainman Josh Homme has revealed all about his new pastime while his band are on tour.

Following in the footsteps of Kiss driving their racing cars, The DarknessJustin Hawkins playing darts and Jarvis Cocker collecting matchboxes with dogs on them, Homme’s new hobby doesn’t involve even leaving the hotel.

The singer, together with soundman 'Hutch' and tattoo artist friend Wayne Sherman, have spent their most recent tours indulging in a spot of room redecoration.

This is no casual graffiti, as they draw their art hotel walls usually covered by framed art prints, headboards and dusty mirrors.

The trio then replace the room, leaving staff unaware of their “improvements” until the installations are posted online at

“It's like panties,” he suggested of his artistic urges. “There's something better behind the mystery.”

The W hotel chain are now talking to the frontman about officially redecorating their resorts, suggesting there’s a truce in the room demolishing antics started in the 60s by The Who’s Keith Moon.

“Rock bands used to be known for trashing hotel rooms,” muses Homme, “but we're now in the business of leaving something behind.”
