Them Crooked Vultures dropped an album in 2009 and have disappeared off the radar since. It’s hardly surprising, considering that Dave Grohl has been busy with Queens of the Stone Age and Foo Fighters. He has even made time for a couple of Nirvana reunion shows.
Still, fans can’t help but feel a little cheated that Them Crooked Vultures only offered up one album. The band features Grohl along with the legendary Led Zeppelin bassist, John Paul Jones. Fellow Queens of the Stone Age band member Josh Homme was on vocals and the result was one hell of a superband.
Technically we’re still a band,” Grohl told The Guardian. “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.”
Although Grohl’s making no promises, we’re holding onto that flicker of hope. By the sounds of it, Grohl is in as much awe as we are of the collaboration.
“There are times when you’ve relaxed into a sofa and you’re not thinking about his time in Led Zeppelin,” he added. “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.”
We may not have any Them Crooked Vultures updates for a while, but in the meantime, you can enjoy this throwback track:
