Them Crooked Vultures – the band featuring Josh Homme of Queens Of The Stone Age, Dave Grohl of Foo Fighters, and John Paul Jones formerly of Led Zeppelin – released their self-titled debut album in 2009 and we’ve been waiting for a follow-up ever since. The closest we got to a Them Crooked Vultures reunion was at the Taylor Hawkins tribute show on September 3, 2022 where the band played a Queens Of The Stone Age cover, an Elton John cover, and their own track “Gunman”.

So when is a full-on Them Crooked Vultures reunion happening? According to Homme during a Reddit AMA, it’s up to Dave Grohl. Homme notes that there’s always a chance for a reunion, but it’s not exactly the biggest chance. Cue the Lloyd Christmas .gif.

“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.”
