Dave Grohl Teases THEM CROOKED VULTURES (LED ZEPPELIN, QOTSA) Might Be Working On Something
Them Crooked Vultures, the band consisting of Foo Fighters drummer Dave Grohl, Led Zeppelin bassist John Paul Jones, and Queens Of The Stone Age guitarist and vocalist Josh Homme, released their first and only album Them Crooked Vultures on November 16, 2009.
There was some talk of a second album between 2010 and 2012 from both Grohl and live guitarist Alain Johannes, though nothing ever surfaced. Last we heard from the group was in 2017 when Grohl said its members would occasionally talk, but nothing substantial seemed to be bubbling under the surface.
Now in a new interview with The Guardian, Grohl seems to be teasing that the band might be getting back together sometime this year to rehearse. He later adds "there’s always something cooking."
“There are times when you’ve relaxed into a sofa and you’re not thinking about his time in Led Zeppelin. Then you start playing and you’re immediately reminded that you are a musical speck compared to this man. It’s still hard to accept that I got to play in a band with that guy. Technically we’re still a band.” Does that mean something’s on the horizon? He teases: “We practise once every decade, and we’re coming up on another decade aren’t we? I don’t have any official news but there’s always something cooking.”
So here's hoping, right?
