During a new interview with Rolling Stone, Josh Homme (Queens Of The Stone Age) was asked about the status of Them Crooked Vultures, his project with Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters) and John Paul Jones (Led Zeppelin). He responded by saying he is “always ready” to be in the band again if they decide to return.
Homme said the following:
“The ironic thing is that we all want to do another Vultures record and 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?”
He also added:
“I think, ultimately, these things happen when they’re supposed to, and I don’t have much experience in forcing things to happen like that. When you’re playing music, people come together because they want to and not from a sense of need or desperation. I think that’s the best reason to come together.”
This news comes after Grohl previously seemed to suggest that a reunion is possible.
Them Crooked Vultures, the supergroup featuring Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters), John Paul Jones (Led Zeppelin), and Josh Homme (Queens Of The Stone Age), have not been active since 2010, but it looks there is still a chance that they may return one day. Grohl recently talked a bit about the project during an interview with The Guardian and seemed to suggest that a reunion is possible.
Grohl said the following about Homme:
“Josh is one of my best friends. We’re like brothers. We go out and have waffles together. We ride motorcycles. There is nobody I’d rather play drums with. He’s the guy.”
He also added the following about Jones and Them Crooked Vultures:
“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.”
“We practice 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.”
Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters) was recently interviewed on Beats 1 Radio and was asked about the possibility of reuniting with his Them Crooked Vultures bandmates John Paul Jones (Led Zeppelin) and Josh Homme (Queens Of The Stone Age). He responded with the following:
“We do talk about it. Every once in a while, you’ll be up at night drinking a bottle of wine by yourself, and you’ll watch some Crooked Vultures live thing on YouTube and go, ‘We were so good!’ and then we’ll text each other saying, ‘Miss you man!’”
