“Just one month ago I was making a record with Queens Of The Stone Age”, said Gibbons at the time. “Dave Grohl was also taking part.”
Now, however, Grohl has responded to the news and unfortunately put a pin in it, saying that, basically, he and Queens frontman Josh Homme are just being mates.
In a new interview with NME, the Foo Fighters frontman puts the rumours to bed, saying “I’m not on the new Queens record. You know what Josh and I have been doing together? Riding motorcycles and eating waffles. That’s it. Let me tell you, it’s a fun morning. We’ve done it more than a few times and it’s pretty fucking great.”
So, it looks like Grohl and Homme’s relationship is personal for the time being – although Grohl did express a wish to collaborate with Homme again.
“I wish I was on the new Queens album. I fucking love playing with Josh. He’s one of my best friends, but at the moment it’s just motorcycles and waffles.”
Grohl last appeared on a Queens of the Stone Age album in 2013, providing drums and percussion on a number of tracks for …Like Clockwork.
The last Queens record was 2017’s Villains.
