Dave "busiest man in rock" Grohl might be on hiatus from Foo Fighters, but that doesn't mean that he's taking it easy.
His documentary "Sound City" is due for release next year and he is putting down drums for the new Queens Of The Stone Age album. And as if that isn't enough, he's now hinting at a return for Them Crooked Vultures, the band he formed with QOTSA main man Josh Homme and Led Zeppelin bassist John Paul Jones.
Grohl has stated that playing with JPJ was one of the highlights of his life:
"It was one of the highlights of my life when John Paul said, 'Now I've been in two great bands.' That was a huge deal for me."
Discussing a reunion he says: "We've talked about it I know that someday we'll get back together and do stuff, because we love playing with each other." Meanwhile, Josh Homme has issued a cryptic statement about the new QOTSA record in a letter sent to Mojo. The album will feature returning bassist Nick Oliveri and NIN main man Trent Reznor alongside Grohl.
"A stitch in time will save you 9. But... there's no way we could have prepared for the journey up the river that is this album. In our grand plan we envisioned our lives and recordings running like clockwerk [sic]. However, the reality has been manic and unpredictable.
"These songs aren't recollections of times we had. They are depictions of what we are going through in real time. It means even a bad event can turn into an unforgettable song. At least for us, ha.
"The record sound [sic] like running in a dream inside a codeine cabaret. I hope you understand what that means, cause we don't.
"Sounds like a load of pretentious sh-t! What? Gotta go, the therapist says our time is up..."
