Dave Grohl has responded to rumours that he is set to feature on the new Queens Of The Stone Age album.
Speculation has been rife ever since ZZ Top’s very own Billy Gibbons seemingly confirmed the collaboration when he said: “Just one month ago I was making a record with Queens of the Stone Age,” in an interview with EonMusic. “Dave Grohl was also taking part and he decided to have a big barbecue. So there was this interesting gathering. So, we spent one hour telling stories, great stories remembering these lovely guys,” he added.
Following those claims from ZZ Top, fans of both Foo Fighters and Queens Of The Stone Age were whipped up into a frenzy at the idea of a collaboration on the new Homme-fronted album. However, after being asked about the claims, Grohl poured cold water on the concept: “You know, I never fucking mentioned that I’m on the new Queens record,” Grohl told NME. “I’m not on the new Queens record.”
He added: “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.”
Despite insisting that he won’t feature on the new QOTSA album, Grohl did hint at a future team up when he said he did “wish” he was on the record. “I fucking love playing with Josh,” he added.
“He’s one of my best friends, but at the moment it’s just motorcycles and waffles.”
