Josh Homme: “We All Want To Do Another Them Crooked Vultures Record”
Earlier this year, Foo Fighters drummer Dave Grohl teased the return of Them Crooked Vultures, the supergroup featuring himself, Queens Of The Stone Age’s Josh Homme, and Led Zeppelin’s John Paul Jones. Now, Josh himself has said that not only would he be game for another Vultures record, but everyone in the band is down to make it happen.
Speaking to Rolling Stone, Josh said, “The ironic thing is that we all want to do another Vultures record and I think everyone has certain roles they play in the Vultures, and in all honesty, I feel like part of Dave’s role — since he got it together the first time by saying, ‘Hey, do you wanna try this?’ — I feel like that’s part of in his job description in Vultures. I have my various things that I’m supposed to do I think, but that isn’t one of them. But I’m always ready to be in Them Crooked Vultures again. I don’t chase, you know?”
“I think, ultimately, these things happen when they’re supposed to,” continued Josh, “and I don’t have much experience in forcing things to happen like that. When you’re playing music, people come together because they want to and not from a sense of need or desperation. I think that’s the best reason to come together.”

Josh’s attitude echoes Dave Grohl’s sentiment: that Them Crooked Vultures is just waiting to be re-energized.
“Technically we’re still a band,” said Dave back in August. “We practice 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.”
