Dave Grohl, has joined Queens Of The Stone Age to record drums for their next album.
The band’s leader, Josh Homme, has confirmed the news to Radio 1’s Zane Lowe that Joey Castillo would be replaced on the band’s forthcoming album, their sixth. Apparent proof came with a picture on the band’s Facebook page, showing the name “Dave” next to the drum faders on a studio mixing desk. It’s not known if Grohl will be joining them for their appearance at next summer’s Download festival at Donington Park.
Grohl was briefly a part of Queens Of The Stone Age a decade ago, when he drummed on the band’s 2002 album “Songs for the Deaf”. Though he played a small number of shows with the band, he didn’t become a full permanent member and embark on the tour in support of the record. He can, though, be seen in the video for the album’s hit single “No One Knows”. He and Homme also worked together with former Led Zeppelin bassist John Paul Jones in the alternative project Them Crooked Vultures.
Grohl has previously been a member of Scream and legendary Nirvana, as well as taking a bit-part role with other acts including Killing Joke, Tenacious D, Nine Inch Nails, Juliette and the Licks, David Bowie, Mike Watt, Buzz Osborne, the Prodigy, Slash, Cage the Elephant, and his own metal project, Probot.
