Dave Grohl has shot down rumors that he will make an appearance on the next album from Queens Of The Stone Age. The reports of his involvement began circulating earlier this summer, when ZZ Top guitarist Billy Gibbons said in an interview, “Just one month ago I was making a record with Queens Of The Stone Age, and Dave Grohl was also taking part and he decided to have a big barbecue.”
But Grohl denied that he plays on the LP, telling NME, “You know, I never f**king mentioned that I’m on the new Queens record. I’m not on the new Queens record. You know what Josh(Homme, Queens frontman) and I have been doing together? Riding motorcycles and eating waffles. That’s it.”
Grohl added, “I wish I was on the new Queens album. I f**king love playing with Josh. He’s one of my best friends, but at the moment it’s just motorcycles and waffles.” Grohl did play drums on the band’s 2002 album Songs For The Deaf, and also contributed drums to five songs on 2013’s …Like Clockwork.
Meanwhile, Grohl has hinted that Foo Fighters could debut a new song at this weekend’s Reading and Leeds festivals in England. Noting that it’s the Foos’ seventh appearance at the event, Grohl remarked, “We could bust out the same set that we played in 1995. We could come out on stage with new songs. We could come out on stage and do a chronological history of the band, in reverse. It’s just a matter of figuring out how to do it.”
Both Grohl and drummer Taylor Hawkins have hinted that there is new Foos material in the works. The band’s most recent LP, Concrete And Gold, came out in September 2017.
