Them Crooked Vultures

Rock/metal supergroups spring up all the time, and for every one that actually gets off the ground, there are many that are rumored or mentioned that never come to pass. So, when Queens Of The Stone Age mainman Josh Homme mentioned a possible project with Dave Grohl and none other than legendary Led Zeppelin bassist John Paul Jones in 2005, surely many took the news with a grain of salt. Lo and behold, the project became a reality, oddly named Them Crooked Vultures, releasing a debut album in late 2009. Grohl had worked with Homme in the Queens previously, so it wasn't a stretch for them to pair up again. But getting Jones involved was quite a coup, as he's been out of the spotlight for years. Yet the album works -- it's very much a Homme-led effort, meaning it's not a million miles away from later-period Queens, and musically doesn't bear much resemblance to Jones' or Grohl's bands. But all three contribute to the songwriting and all three sound pretty invigorated here. Who knows where this project will be in a few years time, but for now this is an interesting band, and surely Queens Of The Stone Age fans will latch on to this.
