Nearly 10 years ago, Queens of the Stone Age's Josh Homme, Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl and Led Zeppelin's John Paul Jones formed a supergroup and put out a self-titled album under the moniker Them Crooked Vultures. And though the band has laid dormant since 2010, its return could be on the horizon.

During a recent interview with Rolling Stone,Homme not only expressed his interested in making more music with Grohl and Jones, but also revealed that his bandmates are all for a reunion, too.

“The ironic thing is that we all want to do another Vultures record and I think everyone has certain roles they play in the Vultures, and in all honesty, I feel like part of Dave’s role — since he got it together the first time by saying, ‘Hey, do you wanna try this?’ — I feel like that’s part of in his job description in Vultures," he explained. "I have my various things that I’m supposed to do I think, but that isn’t one of them. But I’m always ready to be in Them Crooked Vultures again. I don’t chase, you know?”

“I think, ultimately, these things happen when they’re supposed to,” he continued, “and I don’t have much experience in forcing things to happen like that. When you’re playing music, people come together because they want to and not from a sense of need or desperation. I think that’s the best reason to come together.”

Over the summer Grohl also hinted at the band's possible return. “Technically we’re still a band,” he said at the time. “We practice once every decade, and we’re coming up on another decade, aren’t we? I don’t have any official news but there’s always something cooking.”

While we wait for new Vultures music, Homme recently resurrected his experimental Desert Sessions project.
