Straight from Pitchfork:
“According to Antiquiet, Dave Grohl told Mojo magazine in 2005, “The next project that I’m trying to initiate involves me on drums, [Queens of the Stone Age’s] Josh Homme on guitar, and [Led Zeppelin’s] John Paul Jones playing bass. That’s the next album. That wouldn’t suck.”
Four years and hundreds of rumors later, it seems like this no-qualifier-necessary, cap-S Supergroup is ready for its close-up. They’ve got a name: Them Crooked Vultures. (Via Antiquiet.) There’s an oh-so-cryptic show listing for a post-Lollapalooza midnight gig this Sunday, August 9, at Chicago’s Metro that features symbols for the Foo Fighters, Led Zeppelin, and Queens of the Stone Age. And there’s also an official-looking website that links to Them Crooked Vultures hubs on MySpace, Facebook, and Twitter. The Twitter lists Them Crooked Vultures’ bio as “Dave Grohl, Josh Homme, John Paul Jones.” Super and online friendly!
While a fall tour and new album are currently being whispered about, official spokespeople are keeping mum about Them Crooked Vultures at press time.”
All I can say is: Y E S.
