A band name has been blurted out for the group involving John Paul Jones, Dave Grohl and Josh Homme. It's the Crooked Vultures, according to one musician who's apparently in the know.
Eagles of Death Metal singer Jesse Hughes said the name during a live interview broadcast on Power 99 in Winnipeg, Canada.
Hughes, when asked if Homme was touring with the Eagles of Death Metal, said, "No, he's actually with the Crooked Vultures. He's doing the supergroup thing with Dave Grohl and John Paul Jones."
When the interviewer asked Hughes to clarify, he paused and said, "Yeah, maybe I'm not supposed to say that."
The conversation then got back on track to the original question of who's playing with the Eagles of Death Metal.
Management for Jones offered no comment when contacted by LedZeppelinNews.com.
