Josh Homme Comments On The Possibility Of Them Crooked Vultures Reuniting


Them Crooked Vultures, the relatively short-lived supergroup formed around the core trio of Foo Fighters vocalist/guitarist Dave Grohl, Led Zeppelin bassist John Paul Jones and Queens Of The Stone Age vocalist/guitarist Josh Homme, have essentially remained inactive since winding down the touring cycle for their debut album back in 2010.

While the band did reunite for a brief performance as part of a tribute to late Foo Fighters drummer/vocalist Taylor Hawkins back in the fall of 2022, there’s been no word on any future plans since.

Taking part in a an AMA on Reddit this week, Homme was asked about the possibility of the band reuniting, to which he revealed that he would like to, though it’s not his decision to make. He responded:

“On the subject of Vultures, it’s sort of not my job to put Vultures back together, that’s Dave’s job. My job is to dance around the right words and try to write some music with the guys. I really want to, and Dave knows this too. I really want the Vultures to get back together and get the band back together and do one more round, because the band is so strange, the music is so strange, and sort of perverse.

I don’t know, I had such a joyous time on those tours and being in that band and because the other guys are Dave Grohl and John Paul Jones [laughs], and it’s just really good, and so that playing is just so simple and you’re able to get into ideas right away and they just happen. And I don’t know, that is a bit addictive, that environment.

So, is there any chance? Yeah. But I just like that it’s not up to me. I have other responsibilities there. So is there a chance? Yeah. There is. Is it a good chance? No.”
