Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl to Drum on New Queens of the Stone Age Album
The band confirmed the news by posting a photo of a studio mixing console showing the name Dave written on a channel above the drum fader.
Since his onstage declaration that Foo Fighters would be taking a hiatus (or more of a brief sabbatical, we hope) about a month ago, Dave Grohl has been doing an excellent job of staying busy. Aside from preparing for the release of the Sound City documentary that he produced and directed, it's now been announced Grohl will be drumming with Josh Homme's band Queens of the Stone Age on their forthcoming sixth album.
It's a recording reunion for the two, since the Nirvana drummer was previously featured on QOTSA's 2002 Songs for the Deaf, and Grohl and Homme have collaborated in the 2009 side-project Them Crooked Vultures as well. Homme made the announcement on Zane Lowe's Radio 1 show, saying after former drummer Joey Castillo left the band, Grohl would take his place -- at least in the studio.
When Grohl played with QOTSA in 2002, his participation was mainly limited to the album's recording with just a few live tour dates along with an appearance in the video for the single "No One Knows." No word yet on whether his involvement will extend beyond the studio this time around.
