Queens Of The Stone Age Reunite With Nick Oliveri

When it was announced the Dave Grohl had rejoined Queens Of The Stone Age, some commenters theorized/joked that maybe Nick Oliveri would be next to rejoin the band. Considering the apparent acrimony after Josh Homme booted Oliveri in 2004 (and especially after Oliveri was charged with numerous criminal counts in 2011), that seemed ... unlikely. More »

Josh Homme – “Nobody To Love”

According to their spare Facebook posts, Queens Of The Stone Age are at work on their sixth LP, the follow-up to 2007's Era Vulgaris (apparently it sounds "so badass," according to Eagles Of Death Metal frontman Jesse Hughes), but in the meantime, we've got a new track from the band's mastermind, Josh Homme. "Nobody To… More »

Glastonbury 2011 In Photos & Video

Beyoncé doesn't normally play festivals, but by all accounts she killed it at Worth Farm last night. After her Glasto headline performance the star told BBC she was so nervous playing for 175,000 people she sent Chris Martin her setlist to approve in advance. Of course between solo hits, Destiny's Child favorites, and a medley… More »

New Them Crooked Vultures – “Mind Eraser, No Chaser”

It's about time someone had some pun with Thelonius Monk. "Mind Eraser, No Chaser" isn't the first studio single we've heard from rock-demigod triptych Them Crooked Vultures' self-titled debut -- that'd be "New Fang" -- and it isn't the only instance of their titular wordplay (see also: "Interlude With Ludes," "Caligulove"). But it's the first… More »

New Them Crooked Vultures – “New Fang”

You don't have to pack into crammed rock clubs/attend huge festivals/scour YouTube for crap-grade performance clips for tastes of the Led Stone Age Fighters supergroup much longer: Them Crooked Vultures have a self-titled debut out next month, and the studio song they want you to hear first is "New Fang." For fans of riffs. More »

Them Crooked Vultures @ Stubb’s, Austin 10/1/09

They've come a long way: From being just a couple of scrappy upstarts playing a bunch of unreleased material at the Metro this summer, three practically unknown dudes named John Paul Jones, Josh Homme, and Dave Grohl (along with megastar Alain Johannes of course) now have a full US tour plotted, kicking off last night… More »

New Them Crooked Vultures – “Caligulove” (Live At Lowlands)

Following live videos of "Dead End Friends" and "Elephants," here's one for "Caligulove" from the Homme/Grohl/John Paul Jones project captured at Saturday's Lowlands festival in the Netherlands. Not as bombastic as previous samples, but this one's got JPJ on organ, y'all. (Plus, full-length vid of "Nobody Loves Me [And Neither Do I]," which is TCV'… More »

New Them Crooked Vultures – “Elephants” (Live At Pukkelpop Festival)

This past weekend the Josh Homme/Dave Grohl/John Paul Jones supergroup Them Crooked Vultures did two festival gigs in Europe, including the "surprise" set which surprised nobody at Belgium's Pukkelpop. We're still waiting on the trio to stop playing coy and just confirm some details around their inevitable album already, but in the interim we'll just… More »

New Them Crooked Vultures – “Dead End Friends” (Live In Amsterdam)

Josh, Dave, and John Paul didn't make it easy for us to attend their first-ever live show: midnight on a Sunday in Chicago, which happened to be just hours after three days of the muggiest Lollapalooza to date, at the 1,100-capacity Metro rock club. Which had a broken air conditioner, as if the 1,100+ Zep/QOTSA/Foos/Nirvana… More »

Them Crooked Vultures @ Metro, Chicago 8/9/09

After three days of extreme sweat and fatigue from running between stages in Grant Park for Lollapalooza (post TK), ordinarily there'd be zero appeal to a midnight Sunday show in an overcapacity rock club without a working air conditioner. But there was nothing ordinary about last night's gig at the 1,100-person Metro in Wrigleyville. And… More »

The Dead Weather @ Bowery Ballroom, NYC 4/14/09

You couldn't be surprised when the Dead Weather's roadies came out in uniform dress code (suits and bowler hats) last night: This was a Jack White show after all. Although according to those who secured access to last night's NYC debut of supergroup the Dead Weather, the focus was primarily on the Kills vixen Aliso… More »
