Dave Grohl Confirms Them Crooked Vultures Performance


Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl, Queens of the Stone Age singer Josh Homme, and Led Zeppelin bassist John Paul Jones formed the supergroup Them Crooked Vultures in 2009 to release their lone album, and their Twitter account has laid dormant for 10 years after their 2010 tour ended, with just a lone tweet in 2015. The band broke their silence with a new tweet on Thursday, announcing a streamed classic performance.

Them Crooked Vultures tweeted, “Tomorrow, Friday the 16th of Oct., tune in for a rare stream of Them Crooked Vultures full 2010 performance at @RoyalAlbertHall in support of @TeenageCancer Trust. Watch: https://youtu.be/s7M21FwUzXA. If you are able, consider donating: http://teenagecancertrust.org/unseen.”

Foo Fighters tweeted regarding the streaming performance, “Reminder! Warning sign Friday, 16th of Oct. at 10pm BST Warning sign.”

Them Crooked Vultures had hinted at releasing a second album while on tour in 2010, with John Paul Jones being the most hopeful, especially as his hopes for a Led Zeppelin reunion fell apart in 2008.

Dave Grohl ended up returning to Foo Fighters to release the smash hit Wasting Light in 2011, while Josh Homme dealt with health issues, including nearly dying on an operating table, before returning with Queens of the Stone Age’s highly acclaimed …Like Clockwork in 2013. Fans may have to continue waiting for a Them Crooked Vultures reunion, but this could be a hopeful sign for 2021! Dave Grohl recently discussed wanting to quit Foo Fighters.
