Led Zeppelin, Queens of the Stone Age and Foo Fighters supergroup is go!

5 Aug

The highly anticipated rock supergroup consisting of John Paul Jones, Josh Homme and Dave Grohl now has a name. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you:

Them Crooked Vultures

You may remember I wrote about the story a month or so ago – it was a bit light on detail granted, all I had to go on was a brief quote by Josh’s wife Brody (ex-Distillers, now Spinnerette) but it’s something that a lot of people are really really buzzed about.

This has got to be one of the most exciting projects to ever exist. 

 And rightly so, the 2001 Queens of the Stone Age record ‘Songs For The Deaf’ is one of my favourite albums of all time and as you all know, features Dave Grohl on drums. It’s a ferocious record and it’s one that I don’t think QOTSA have sinced matched. So it’s very exciting to think that those two will be locking horns again. And that’s before I even talk about the legend that is JPJ! 

Led Zeppelin have made some of the best rock albums of all time – inspired millions of bands and in my opinion, never been beaten. So for all three of these guys to be recording a record together…. well, it makes me hard!

Apparently, they are playing a show in Chicago at the Metro this coming Sunday (August 9th). What a fucking hot ticket that will be! There are also talks about a UK tour in the near future with the album to come hopefully by the end of the year! 

There’s no music up on their MySpace page as of yet but make no mistake, I am all over this and will report back as soon as I get any news!

According to this poster, the album (entitled ‘Never Deserved the Future’) is going to be released on October 23rd.

I am not sure where this poster came from so it may be a fake. It looks pretty genuine though! Don’t you just love music on days like this?!!!

In other news, I’ve read a few articles recently that claim that Josh Homme has been in contact with Mike Patton! However, this could be a completely different project – after all, it’s been a while since the last Desert Sessions album so maybe it’s for that!
