Queens of the Stone Age

Although he is playing drums on the upcoming new release from Queens of the Stone Age, Foo Fighters front man Dave Grohl has revealed that he won't go on tour with the band. He has however said that another tour with his side project Them Crooked Vultures is a possibility. Them Crooked Vultures consist of Grohl, Queens of the Stone Age singer and guitarist Josh Homme, and Led Zeppelin bassist John Paul Jones. Speaking to New York's 101.1 WCBS-FM Grohl said: "It was one of the highlights of my life when John Paul Jones said, 'Now I've been in two great bands.' That was a huge deal for me... We've talked about it, I know that someday we'll get back together and do stuff, because we love playing with each other."

Dave Grohl also played drums on QOTSA's 2002 release Songs For The Deaf. The upcoming album, which has yet to be named, will be the band's first since 2007's Era Vulgaris.
