Them Crooked Vultures


What started as a hypothetical supergroup made up by Foo Fighter/Nirvana alum Dave Grohl for the UK press is now real and touring: Them Crooked Vultures features Grohl on drums, Led Zep’s John Paul Jones on bass, and Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme as, well, frontman. They haven’t officially released much music—just a few sub-minute instrumental clips—but what’s leaked has been the sort of jam-rock extraordinaire you’d expect from these three, with all the tongue-in-cheek cartoon imagery and wickedly self-satisfied aplomb to boot.
