Them Crooked Vultures will return vows Grohl
Supergroup Them Crooked Vultures will return at some point in the future, Dave Grohl has vowed.
And the drummer says it was a “huge deal” to hear bassist John Paul Jones compare the band to his previous outfit Led Zeppelin.
The Vultures, complete with frontman Josh Homme, released a self-titled album in 2009, the undertook a world tour and won a Grammy for their track New Fang.
Grohl – who’s poised to release his Sound City documentary movie – tells CBS: “It was one of the highlights of my life when John Paul said, ‘Now I’ve been in two great bands.’ That was a huge deal for me.”
Discussing a reunion he says: “We’ve talked about it – I know that someday we’ll get back together and do stuff, because we love playing with each other.”
Meanwhile, Grohl has ruled out touring with Homme’s band Queens of the Stone Age, despite having recorded the drum tracks for their next album. It’s also set to feature former QOTSA bassist Nick Oliveri and Trent Reznor.
Homme sent a cryptic note to Mojo Magazine, hinting about the record’s contents. He wrote: “A stitch in time will save you 9. But… there’s no way we could have prepared for the journey up the river that is this album. In our grand plan we envisioned our lives and recordings running like clockwerk [sic]. However, the reality has been manic and unpredictable.
“These songs aren’t recollections of times we had. They are depictions of what we are going through in real time. It means even a bad event can turn into an unforgettable song. At least for us, ha.
“The record sound [sic] like running in a dream inside a codeine cabaret. I hope you understand what that means, cause we don’t.
“Sounds like a load of pretentious sh••! What? Gotta go, the therapist says our time is up…”
