Fans of the Foo Fighters and Queens of the Stone Age had better start cultivating some patience. Dave Grohl and Josh Homme are having such a good time with supergroup Them Crooked Vultures, it doesn’t seem they’ll be stepping back in front of their old gigs any time soon.
But who can blame them? The third member of their trio is John Paul Jones. You know, the dude who played bass on “Immigrant Song.” And really, it’s not just the members of the band who love Led Zeppelin; it’s TCV’s fans too. At least, according to Jones. ”[Zeppelin fans] have been disappointed a long time—they’re getting used to it,” he told Stuff.co.nz. “I think they’re enjoying [the Vultures]. It doesn’t sound like Led Zeppelin but it’s got a similar sort of vibe. It’s a groovy, exciting rock band”
Jones says he’s enjoying the chemistry and a shared work ethic with the seasoned Grohl and Homme. “We’ll do a second album this year,” he confirmed. “By the end of summer, something like that.”
