It’s almost been a decade since Them Crooked Vultures released their sole studio album, but according to Dave Grohl, there could be more on the way.
Way back in 2005, Dave Grohl hinted that he was working on a brand new project with Queens Of The Stone Age’s Josh Homme and Led Zeppelin’s John Paul Jones.
Four years later, the world was treated to the first new song by a supergroup named Them Crooked Vultures. Releasing an impressive self-titled debut and playing a handful of shows all the over the world, the band was quickly over as soon as it began.
Since then, fans have been hanging out for new material and shows from the band. However, while we discovered Jimmy Page was almost in the group, and that Dave Grohl hasn’t ruled out a reunion just yet, the Foo Fighters frontman has again ignited hope that good things could be on the way from the highly-talented collective.

Speaking to The Guardian, Dave Grohl touched upon his relationship with the members of Them Crooked Vultures, noting that Josh Homme is one of his “best friends”.
“We go out and have waffles together. We ride motorcycles,” Grohl began. “There is nobody I’d rather play drums with. He’s the guy.”
Speaking about his fondness for John Paul Jones though, Dave Grohl explained that he counts himself lucky to work with the iconic bassist, hinting at more material in the future.
“There are times when you’ve relaxed into a sofa and you’re not thinking about his time in Led Zeppelin,” Grohl 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. Technically we’re still a band.
“We practise 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.”
While this isn’t the hard and fast news about new material and live dates that fans have been hanging out for, it does bode well that Dave Grohl has not ruled out a future for the group.
