Dave Grohl wants to make another Them Crooked Vultures album but says he and his supergroup bandmates find it hard to get together
Dave Grohl wants to make another Them Crooked Vultures record.
The Foo Fighters frontman would love to reunite with his supergroup bandmates, Queens of the Stone Age singer Josh Homme and Led Zeppelin's John Paul Jones, but admits their busy schedules makes it difficult to return to the studio together for the first time since 2009.
He said: "I would love to make another Vultures record. I think our biggest hurdle is just a logistic one, that the three of us are all pretty busy."
The 'Best Of You' hitmaker admitted he is keen to do other things outside of Foo Fighters, but ruled out a return to Probot, his 2004 heavy-metal group who released a self-titled album featuring the likes of Motörhead's Lemmy, Veonom's Cronos and actor and Tenacious D singer Jack Black.
He told NME magazine: "I mean, I'm trying to think of things that I would revisit. I get asked to do another Probot record all the time, but I can't do it. Those were my favourite singers."
Meanwhile, Dave also admitted he considered marking the 20th anniversary of Foo Fighters' self-titled debut album - which was recorded almost entirely by the singer - by rerecording it with the full band, but the idea was shot down by drummer Taylor Hawkins.
He said: "At one point I thought, 'You know what would be really funny? To re-record the first Foo Fighters record as the band we are now' - 'cos the first record isn't the Foo Fighters, it's just me. So what if, for the 20th anniversary, we went in and re-recorded the first record - same songs, same arrangements, in sequence - but as the Foo Fighters 2014? Taylor was like, 'Are you out of your f***ing mind?! That's the worst idea ever! People would f***ing hate it!' And Pat [Smear] said, 'That's exactly why we should do it!' "
