This prompted a change in the music industry where creative freedom is now overshadowed by fear and worry that a lawsuit could soon follow for any stylistic resemblences between songs. Queens Of The Stone Age frontman Josh Homme decided to give his two cents on the state of music copyright while drinking some high-end tequila during his Rolling Stone’s interview.
“It used to be, if anything had any hint of anybody else,” Homme tells Rolling Stone, “I wouldn’t play it. Now, I don’t worry about things, even though copyright law is really fucked up right now because of that dumb shit Robin Thicke. What a douchebag. Talk about thick. Now the copyright law is like, ‘If it tastes like chicken, I guess you stole it.’ Thanks, asshole.”
