Back in June, ZZ Top frontman Billy Gibbons got us all excited when he divulged that he and Dave Grohl contributed to Queens of the Stone Age's new album. “Just one month ago I was making a record with Queens Of The Stone Age,” he said during an interview with eonmusic, “and Dave Grohl was also taking part and he decided to have a big BBQ. So there was this interesting gathering.”
Only, according to the Foo Fighters frontman, he wasn't involved at all. During an interview with NME, a not-so-pleased Grohl said that he won't be featured on the project. “You know, I never f**king mentioned that I’m on the new Queens record,” he said bluntly. “I’m not on the new Queens record. You know what Josh [Homme] and I have been doing together? Riding motorcycles and eating waffles. That’s it. Let me tell you, it’s a fun morning. We’ve done it more than a few times and it’s pretty f**king great. I wish I was on the new Queens album. I f**king love playing with Josh. He’s one of my best friends, but at the moment it’s just motorcycles and waffles.”
Though it's a bummer we won't get to hear Grohl on the upcoming QOTSA record, he and Homme may be collaborating again in the not-so-distant future. During a recent interview with The Guardian, Grohl hinted at the return of Them Crooked Vultures, his supergroup with Homme and Led Zeppelin's John Paul Jones.
