John Paul Jones spoke with the Montreal Gazette about how he, Josh Homme and Dave Grohl came together to form the supergroup Them Crooked Vultures. “It came about a year ago, almost to the week. It’s all Dave Grohl’s fault. He approached me in England. He was there to give the remaining members of Led Zeppelin an award,” Jones said. “He said he was doing something with a friend of his, Josh Homme, and would I be interested in joining? I knew what Josh did; I was a fan. And I knew what a great drummer Dave was. So I said, ‘Yes, let’s get together.’ We met just after Josh’s birthday, in L.A., and started putting it down.”
