I didn`t change Arctic Monkeys`: Josh Homme
London: Queens Of The Stone Age frontman Josh Homme has said that the idea he changed Arctic Monkeys` sound is a "misconception".
Homme produced the band`s third album Humbug, part of which was recorded at his studio in the Mojave Desert, suggets reports.
"I think there`s a misconception that I slowed them down or weirded them out when we worked together. They`ve been playing this dangerous game of changing on every record, reaching like a rock climber for their next grip," Homme said.
"I just love them as people."
Arctic Monkeys and Queens Of The Stone Age will headline Reading & Leeds festival in August.
Arctic Monkeys` most recent album AM reached number one in the UK charts last September, and was nominated for the Mercury Prize.
