Queens of the Stone Age frontman has shared a letter that the late Anthony Bourdain wrote to his daughter.

Bourdain and Homme were close friends. Homme previously guest starred on a 2011 episode of Bourdain’s show ‘No Reservations’. In one sketch, Bourdain smashes Homme’s guitar against a tree. Homme’s daughter Camille witnessed this and became upset with Bourdain; which prompted his letter.

Homme shared the letter Bourdain wrote to his daughter on Twitter, apologising for upsetting her. Accompanying the letter, Hommes wrote: “Tony, I miss you so bad. Once, Camille was so mad at you. She was defending me. & So were you. Defending me. As we had done & would do for many times over the years for each other. & you, with great care, such empathy, such sweetness… you apologised to a little girl who was defending her daddy.”

Earlier this month Queens of the Stone Age dedicated a performance of ‘Long Slow Goodbye’ to Anthony Bourdain while performing at the NorthSide Festival in Denmark, hours after Bourdain’s passing.

Queens of the Stone Age will be coming bringing their Villains world tour to Australia in August this year.
