QOTSA Recruit Elton John
In this album's biggest surprise announcement yet, Elton John has been confirmed for the new Queens Of The Stone Age record. He joins Dave Grohl, Trent Reznor, Mark Lanegan and Scissor Sister Jake Shears among others in the lineup on the long-awaited album. Elton's contribution was revealed on Chelsea Lately, where Dave Grohl is acting as guest host this week. Elton said of QOTSA: "I love that band so much, and I love Them Crooked Vultures." But he says the song he was drafted into was very complicated: "I'm a piano player, and guitar bands play differently... [this song] was in B, which is a pianist's nightmare." Elton was full of praise for Grohl, who he called the most respected musician from his generation, and added: "He's built like a brick sthose when he plays the drums. It was fantastic."
