Them Crooked Vultures: update


Ad agosto Dave Grohl era tornato a parlare del supergruppo Them Crooked Vultures a dieci anni dall’unico album (omonimo). In un’intervista al Guardian, dopo aver raccontato del passato glorioso, del presente di successo e delle varie collaborazioni, si era infatti soffermato sul progetto condiviso assieme all’amico Josh Homme e a John Paul Jones (oltre al supporto live di Alain Johannes). Tecnicamente sono ancora una band…

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. 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 practise 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“.

UPDATE > a distanza di tre mesi interviene sull’argomento anche Josh Homme. In un’intervista rilasciata a Rolling Stone, Ginger Elvis spiega: “The ironic thing is that we all want to do another Vultures record and I think everyone has certain roles they play in the Vultures, and in all honesty, I feel like part of Dave’s role — since he got it together the first time by saying, “Hey, do you wanna try this?” — I feel like that’s part of in his job description in Vultures. I have my various things that I’m supposed to do I think, but that isn’t one of them. But I’m always ready to be in Them Crooked Vultures again. I don’t chase, you know?”.
