Though they’ve been inactive since July of 2010, Them Crooked Vultures may still have some life in them yet. The supergroup comprised of Led Zeppelin‘s John Paul Jones, Foo FightersDave Grohl and Queens Of The Stone Age‘s Josh Homme released one lone album back in 2009.

As part of a reflective new feature published in The Guardian which finds Grohl looking back at key songs from throughout his musical career, he playfully hinted at some potential future activity for the trio. Speaking of his close friendship with Homme, Grohl offered:

Josh is one of my best friends. We’re like brothers. We go out and have waffles together. We ride motorcycles. There is nobody I’d rather play drums with. He’s the guy.”

Regarding John Paul Jones and Them Crooked Vultures, he stated:

“There are times when you’ve relaxed into a sofa and you’re not thinking about his time in Led Zeppelin. Then you start playing and you’re immediately reminded that you are a musical speck compared to this man. It’s still hard to accept that I got to play in a band with that guy. Technically we’re still a band.”

“We practice once every decade, and we’re coming up on another decade aren’t we? I don’t have any official news but there’s always something cooking.”
