Dave Grohl, Josh Homme, John Paul Jones, Them Crooked Vultures

Dave Grohl has hinted that the legendary Them Crooked Vultures may be releasing more music.

Them Crooked Vultures was formed back in 2009 by Grohl (Foo Fighters, Nirvana), John Paul Jones (Led Zeppelin) and Josh Homme (Queens of the Stone Age, Eagles of Death Metal, Kyuss).

Dave Grohl reminisces on friendships with Them Crooked Vulture bandmates, hints that the legendary supergroup may not be done just yet

At the time, the band embarked on a worldwide tour, releasing their eponymous first album which debuted at number 12 on the Billboard 200. Their first single New Fang also won them a Grammy Award for Best Hard Rock Performance.

Over the years there have been several hints of more music, however, nothing seems to have come to fruition as of yet.

Speaking with The Guardian recently ahead of Foo Fighters’ Headlining slot at Reading and Leeds Festivals, Grohl opened up about making music with Jones:

“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 music 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 in a band.” 

When pressed for more information, Grohl said he didn’t have any official news, but there was always “something cooking“:

“We practise once every decade, and we’re coming up on another decade aren’t we?”

Regardless, we can at least be happy with this wholesome image Grohl offered of his friendship with Homme:

We go out and have waffles together. We ride motorcycles. There is nobody I’d rather play drums with. He’s the guy.”
