Lat month French journalist (and Queens Of The Stone Age enthusiast) Cyril Deluermoz reported Dave & Josh were recording together… but it would appear there’s more to it than that.
From a ’05 Mojo interview with Dave:
“The next project that I’m trying to initiate involves me on drums, Josh Homme on guitar, and John Paul Jones playing bass. That’s the next album. That wouldn’t suck.”
From an April ’09 interview with John Paul Jones
…And I’m working on some other music, which is more rock based, with a couple of other people. We hope to be everywhere this summer.
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 .
Chris Cornell’s guitar tech claims to have heard it & now legendary rock photographer (and pal to Led Zeppelin) Ross Halfin has apparently acknowledged the recording sessions. Roll on an official announcement.
