John Paul Jones: Them Crooked Vultures timing was perfect
Them Crooked Vultures were formed just as a planned Led Zeppelin tour fell through.
Led Zeppelin man glad to join Them Crooked Vultures Former Led Zeppelin man John Paul Jones has revealed that his new project came along at just the right time.

Speaking to the BBC, the bassist revealed that there were plans for his former outfit to launch a tour in 2008, but he eventually signed up to rock supergroup Them Crooked Vultures with Queens of the Stone Age's Josh Homme and Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl.

"Jimmy [Page of Led Zeppelin] and I rehearsed a bit with Jason Bonham and we couldn't really agree on singers and that fell by the wayside. Then this came along and to be honest, I'm really happy," he explained.

In addition, Jones told the broadcaster that he was already a fan of Grohl's drumming before being asked to join Them Crooked Vultures, saying that his style is one which complements the work of a bass player.

Earlier this week, the supergroup confirmed details of their self-titled debut album, revealing that it will be released on November 17th and include tracks such as Dead End Friends and No One Loves Me & Neither Do I.
