Snapper: Arctic Monkeys’ Alex Turner guests on Josh Homme’s Beats 1 show

Turner makes an appearance on ‘The Alligator Hour’.

One of the highlights of Apple Music’s Beats 1 bill so far is ‘The Alligator Hour’, a show hosted by Queens of the Stone Age’s Josh Homme.

For his latest edition, Homme welcomed in go-to collaborator and Arctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner. Instead of “dropping the mic” BRITs-style, Turner took part in the first of a two-part interview that’ll conclude next week.

Less an interview, more an off-the-cuff conversation, ‘The Alligator Hour’ saw Turner and Homme sharing their iPhone notes. One of Turner’s read: “John Lennon as a TV chef.” So there’s that.

Listen back to ‘The Alligator Hour’ here.
