Them Crooked Vultures

I’m not normally one to get excited by supergroups.  They merely serve to disappoint.  OK, there are the notable exceptions, Cream and Velvet Revolver, Good, The Bad and The Queen, being examples.  However, Audioslave, Zwan and many others litter the highway of unfulfilled potential.  Well next on the supergroup conveyor belt is Them Crooked Vultures.    Formed by Josh Homme, Dave Grohl and John Paul Jones you’d expect it to be nothing short then brilliant. Dave Grohl is on record stating “”The next project that I’m trying to initiate involves me on drums, Josh Homme on guitar, and John Paul Jones playing bass. That’s the next album. That wouldn’t suck.”

Judging by the recent 14 second clip on the official website and the fan recorded snippets of their first gig on YouTube, he could be right on the money.

Rumour has it that they may put in an special appearance at Leeds and Reading which makes sense seeing as EoDM, Mark Lanegen, and Homme’s wifey is there with Spinnerette it’s not much of a long shot. If they do I’ll be a happy man. Provided I don’t miss it…
