Them Crooked Vultures Will Conquer: And I Haven't Heard A Note Yet


Them Crooked Vultures (or The Best Supergroup since Blind Faith) are for real: this from

Them Crooked Vultures-- the megawatt supergroup of Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl, Queens of the Stone Age's Josh Homme, and Led Zeppelin's John Paul Jones-- made their live debut last night at a Lollapalooza aftershow at the Metro club in Chicago. A small group of very lucky fans snapped up the show's tickets in three minutes; they got to witness Grohl back behind the drum kit, with Homme playing frontman.

Chicago was the musical nucleus of the earth on Saturday night,obviously. This post- Lolla Hullabaloo would have burned my socks right off of my shoes and left them burning and the only thing that would have put it out was the excitement pee running down my leg.

Them Crooked Vultures set list: "Elephants," "New Fang," "Scumbag Blues," "Dead End Friends," "Bandoliers," "Mind Eraser (No Chaser)," "Gunman," "Daffodils," "Interlude w/ Ludes," "Caligulove," "Warsaw," "Nobody Loves Me."

This would be a show I would crawl over 100 miles of gunpowder and glass path walled in by fire to see.

I would convert to a tofu and mushroom-only diet in exchange for a ticket.

I would maybe even sell my star wars figure collection..but not my comics.

Life is full of would-ofs and should-ofs and the future is sutured by Them Crooked Vultures.


  1. Damn! I'd have given a kidney to be front row centre for that. Of course, there would always be the slight issue of massive blood loss caused by amateur and improper removal of said organ.

  2. Yeah- Ida checked that out.
