Dave Grohl says Them Crooked Vultures is “still a band”

ABC/Andrea McCallinDave Grohl is teasing the possible return of Them Crooked Vultures, the Foo Fighters frontman’s supergroup with Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme and Led Zeppelin bassist John Paul Jones.

“Technically we’re still a band,” Grohl tells The Guardian.

“We practice once every decade, and we’re coming up on another decade aren’t we?” he continues. “I don’t have any official news but there’s always something cooking.”

Grohl is still in frequent contact with Homme, who he says is “one of my best friends.”

“We’re like brothers,” Grohl explains. “We go out and have waffles together. We ride motorcycles. There is nobody I’d rather play drums with. He’s the guy.”

Grohl adds that he’s still in awe of Jones.

“There are times when you’ve relaxed into a sofa and you’re not thinking about his time in Led Zeppelin,” he says. “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.”

The self-titled debut Them Crooked Vultures album was released in 2009. The band hasn’t released any new music since.
