Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme gave a special acoustic solo performance of Them Crooked Vultures’ “Spinning in Daffodils” as part of Lollapalooza’s Lolla2020 livestream on Thursday night.
Them Crooked Vultures, the band consisting of Homme, Foo Fighters drummer Dave Grohl, and Led Zeppelin bassist John Paul Jones, released their first and only album on November 16, 2009. Back in November of last year, both Homme and Grohl expressed interest in a reunion of the band.
Ultimately, though, Homme said it’s on Grohl to get the band back together.
“I think everyone has certain roles they play in the Vultures, and in all honesty, I feel like part of Dave’s role — since he got it together the first time by saying, ‘Hey, do you wanna try this?’ — I feel like that’s part of in his job description in Vultures. I have my various things that I’m supposed to do I think, but that isn’t one of them. But I’m always ready to be in Them Crooked Vultures again. I don’t chase, you know?”
While we wait for a reunion, Homme continues to release one-offs during quarantine. But here's hoping, right?
