As many of you know by now, John Paul Jones, Dave Grohl, and Josh Homme have formed a band called “Them Crooked Vultures”. Each of them has been hugely influential in rock music over the last 30 or so years. Just to show you how much each of these guys has done something that I value over the years, I’ve made a list.
Dave Grohl: aside from being in Nirvana (the reason I had long bleached blond hair for so many years), the song “Good Grief” off of the first Foo Fighters record is pretty much the reason why I play drums.
John Paul Jones: the other half of the greatest rock rhythm section ever, and an all around amazing musician and writer. Led Zeppelin is my favorite band and should be yours.
Josh Homme: there were three albums that taught me how to play drums, and “Songs for the Deaf” was one of them (yeah I’ve only been playing that long…..sorry America).
I’ve had Them Crooked Vultures’ self-titled record for about a month now and I’m pretty in love with it. Now, had they not ripped us off so hard on the artwork, I would tell you to go buy it. But they did. So as an artist with integrity, I can’t. Check it out:
Anyway……we have decided to ignore the obvious infringement and just let it go because we are nice guys, and I owe the members of Them Crooked Vultures so much. So what I’m recommending you do is to either buy it without the artwork, or pay Dave Grohl $9.99 to burn you a cd. Because without these guys, who knows what I would sound like with just ZZ Top and Billy Joel influencing me?
On second thought……..Eh fuck it, we’re gonna sue. They’ve got the money.
A live performance of “And The Angel Spoke” (by us) is going to be featured on Fearless Music TV on Saturday night! It’s our second appearance on Fearless, and we’re really excited.

Our very own Joe Stroll will be traveling to Europe this December to play drums with our good friends from Belgium, Drive Like Maria. He’ll be accompanying DLM on tour dates that will take the merry gang of musicians from Amsterdam to Italy. Lucky bastard. Check out Drive Like Maria on Myspace –>
