This could possibly be good. Anyhting with Dave Grohl in it has in some way grabbed my interest over the years, and who can go worng with John Paul fvcking Jones? Josh Homme is practically an unknown to me. I hear good things about Kyuss though. :P

At any rate, it will be better than that super-fail Chickenfoot.

Sounds promising. FAN -- Check out Queens of the Stone Age as well as Kyuss. Don't bother with Eagles... though, they're horrible.

thats cool, all 3 are huge talents. QOTSA and Kyuss are both great bands, nirvana and foo fighters are great and led zeppelin..well that just goes without saying. dave grohl always works well with other artists he's some sort of rock genius, the probot album was great. looking forward to what these guys can come up with together.

Grohl did the entire album "songs for the deaf". Its a smokin' album, It didn't leave my cd player for weeks when it came out. Dave Grohl is an amazing drummer. I look forward to anything he does. Having been alive when zeppelin were still around, JPJ is a great musician, producer and song writer. Josh Homme's got some game too! I can't wait for this group.

I hope this project will be playing blues-rock/hard rock/folk-rock or something like that. But who will be vocalist? Grohl? You are kidding. He is not bad drummer but... Well, im interesting in this project only because the are will John Paul Jones, but I think, this band will be too long for exist.

Not that I wanna bring anyone down, but most of the cases when u have an allstars band, u oddly get average/crap music for some reason. Just like all stars teams or films.
Ocean's Eleven is a fun movie, but not a classic

wow man i forgot about Rawhead Rex. But if you really want to see Grohl shining pick up the Probot cd it is bad as hell. He jams with Cronos of venom, lemmy from motorhead, Tom Warrior from celtic frost and the dude from trouble a solid rock/metal cd.

Probot was definitely on the list to check out...I just never got around to it...will do.

Yeah, Rawhead Rex is one over-the-top motherfuker. Just look at him ^. I was thinking of switching my avatar to a Dead Alive pic to keep the almost forgotten horror "alive." Just can't get away from Rex.
