Foo Fighters front man and Queens of the Stone Age stronghold named
The two people rumored to have been ready to make loud music with John Paul Jones may have just been publicly identified for the first time.
Back in April, Jones posited that he hoped “to be everywhere this summer” with “a couple of other people” who’ve been “working [with him] on some other music, which is more rock based.”
Now, a blog source says recording sessions have already been underway in Los Angeles involving Jones with Dave Grohl and Joshua Homme.
Jones in recent years has sat in with Grohl’s Foo Fighters onstage and in the studio, and conducted an orchestra for the Foos at the Grammys. Homme, who is the only consistent member of Queens of the Stone Age, allowed Grohl to guest on that outfit’s breakthrough single.
When Jones first hinted of a summer project, he gave few details — and intentionally so, it appears, due to an expressed secrecy revolving around the collaboration. After dropping his sole hint in an interview with Women’s Wear Daily, Jones added, “It’s a secret, actually. I shouldn’t have even said that, you know? There are some exciting projects coming up, let’s put it that way.”
But as for what this project would be named, today’s disclosure says it hasn’t yet been determined. But it does say an album will follow.
