As if Dave Grohl needs to add another supergroup to his resume.
Grohl and Homme have done quite a bit together over the years, both in studio and live, going all the way back to Dave taking care of drum duties on Queens Of The Stone Age’s breakthrough 2002 album Songs For The Deaf. Now, it seems as if he and Gibbons are set to be part of Josh Homme’s latest Desert Sessions installment:
“We had gone to the desert to work on just a couple of tracks,” Gibbons explained. He went on to recall one particular instance in which “I was outside, and Josh came out of the studio, and he had this box, and it was making some strange noise, and I said, “Hey, what is that”, and he goes, ‘I dont know, I just found it’; I said; ‘Don’t touch a thing; were going to use it for the song!” So that’s how it started.”
Gibbons went so far as to hint that he’ll even be featured on the forthcoming QOTSA album, but that doesn’t seem to be the case. Plan on hearing all three throw down Desert Sessions-style as early as this October.
