Anyone who was a fan of Queens of the Stone Age’s new album Songs For The Deaf was ecstatic to learn that Dave Grohl would be once again be recording drums for the band’s long-awaited new album. But considering that the Foo Fighters are on “hiatus,” could Grohl’s involvement lead to him playing with them outside of the studio? As it turns out, the answer is no.
During an interview with a CBS local news affiliate at the Kennedy Center Honors ceremony (where the Foo Fighters performed a tribute to honorees Led Zeppelin), Grohl reportedly confirmed that he won’t be touring with Queens Of The Stone Age. As cool as it would’ve been to see him on the road, at least we’ll still get to hear Grohl on the new QOTSA album.
But what about Grohl’s other project with QOTSA frontman Josh Homme and Led Zeppelin’s John Paul Jones, Them Crooked Vultures? Grohl is optimistic that the supergroup will return… someday. “ We’ve talked about it, I know that someday we’ll get back together and do stuff, because we love playing with each other,” Grohl told CBS. Considering that all three members are busy with their own projects, “someday” could be a while. Still, having released such a stellar debut album in 2009, we hope new Them Crooked Vultures material comes sooner than later.
