Dave Grohl Hints That Them Crooked Vultures Could Return
Them Crooked Vultures, the supergroup comprised of Dave Grohl, Josh Homme and John Paul Jones of Led Zeppelin that existed between 2009 and 2010, could come back at some point in the future. In a new interview, Grohl suggested the possibility of a follow-up to their lone album, which was released in 2009.
“We do talk about it,” he said on Zane Lowe's Beats 1 Radio show (via Consequence of Sound). “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!'”
It's known that the trio had planned to make a second album, with Jones saying in 2010, "It will mainly be excess material from the first album, material we started and never finished because we had to go and play the stuff we already recorded!" But how much work was actually completed on it remains unknown.
But before we all get excited about a new Them Crooked Vultures project, two of its members have projects in the pipeline with their main gigs. Yesterday, Foo Fighters dropped a new single and video, "Run," and will spend this summer touring Europe before they can go back into the studio.
Meanwhile, Queens of the Stone Age recently finished making a new record, but have yet to reveal details about it. Since both acts should be expected to tour heavily behind their upcoming works, it's looking likely that Them Crooked Vultures will return later rather than sooner.
