Dave Grohl Not Touring With Queens of the Stone Age
Fans hoping to catch Dave Grohl behind the drum kit when Queens of the Stone Age hit the road next year shouldn’t hold their breath. The Foo Fighters frontman and former Nirvana drummer — who recently joined the hard-rock band fronted by former Kyuss guitarist Josh Homme in the studio to help record their as-yet-untitled new album — tells New York’s 101.1 WCBS-FM that he won’t tour with Queens in support of the disc.
This isn’t Grohl’s first stint with with Queens of the Stone Age. He last played with the band in 2002, recording drums on the band’s most successful album to date, ‘Songs for the Deaf,’ which spawned the hit singles, ‘No One Knows’ and ‘Go With the Flow.’ But Grohl didn’t tour with them then, either — former Danzig drummer Joey Castillo took over Grohl’s drumming duties for the tour in support of that record.
Grohl also revealed that Them Crooked Vultures, his project with Homme and Led Zeppelin‘s John Paul Jones, may someday tour again. “It was one of the highlights of my life when John Paul Jones said, ‘Now I’ve been in two great bands.’ That was a huge deal for me!” Grohl told WCBS. “We’ve talked about it, I know that someday we’ll get back together and do stuff, because we love playing with each other.”
