Foo Zeppelin Queens Group Them Crooked Vultures Spill Some Details

(antiMusic) It seems like a new super group is popping up every week but few have generated as much excitement with fans as Them Crooked Vultures. If you've been living under a rock for the past few months, this new group features Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters, John Paul Jones of Led Zeppelin and Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Age. AntiQuiet.com's Skwerl caught up with Homme this weekend at the Austin City Limits and learned some interest details about the group. Here are a couple of excerpts from their conversation.

Antiquiet: I heard this came together at a renaissance-themed birthday party? - Josh Homme: Yeah, well Dave, he mentioned this idea, and we're always looking for a chance to do stuff together, Dave and I. So he said, "you know what, maybe I should ask John Paul Jones!" And I was like, "that'd be awesome. And I'll ask… The President. And we can put it all together." And then all of a sudden he starts sending me emails, of correspondence between him and Jones, and I was like… 'uhhhh… well s***. What do I do?'

I hadn't played guitar for five months, and I was gonna maybe take a break for a second, for my first time in a long time. But then [Dave] has his birthday party at Medieval Times, and of course he sat us right next to each other. That was the blind date. But he sat in the next row behind us, like looking over (laughing)… But you know, I think it's fairly common to meet someone from Zeppelin at Medieval Times.

Antiquiet: What's going on with the album? - Josh Homme: Well, we just finished figuring out what songs we're going to put on it, which took a little bit of time. We couldn't decide what [we wanted] to do. Do you make a triple album? An EP? How many songs is too much?

I tend to think that even if you've got a bunch of good songs, maybe you should err on the side of brevity, and keep it tight. But we really enjoy lots of songs, so we couldn't decide.
