Them Crooked Vultures is the perfect example of how supergroups don’t work. Having a few awesome musicians together doesn’t guarantee great material.
I love Zeppelin, like QOTSA and can tolerate The Foo Fighters, so when I heard about this band a few years ago I said ‘AWESOME!’. But then I heard their album…
Well, someone who attended one of their shows got tinnitus from it — then killed himself. I am really tempted to insert a joke here, but it’s not really funny, is it?
“A rock music fan apparently took his life after battling to get treatment for debilitating tinnitus, an inquest heard yesterday. Father-of-two Robert McIndoe, 52, was unable to sleep for three months after attending a concert that left him with a permanent ringing in his ears.“

You know what, that’s pretty sad. There’s nothing worse than having medical problems that prevent you from sleeping, must be very frustrating. Oh, and my ears ring after every concert, now I’m gonna be paranoid all the time while the ringing lasts. “Will it go on forever???”
R.I.P. to the guy and best of wishes to his family. I hope we can all learn from his mistake — Do not see this band live.
Yesterday during the “The Grammy Nominations Concert Live!! — Countdown To Music Biggest Night” this year’s Grammy nominees were announced.
We all know that the Grammy’s are the be all, end all of all metal award shows, so you should definitely check out the nominees for Best Hard Rock Performance and Best Metal Performance after the jump (or, if you’re smarter than I think you are, you can just read the huge list of tags beneath this post).
With past winners such as Korn, Deftones, Rage against the Machine, Nine Inch Nails and Soundgarden, you just got to admit that the Grammy’s won lots of credibility for their Best Metal Performance category. Yeah right, what a load of shit. Make the jump anyhow because this year at least 4 of the 5 nominees are in fact metal.
Them Crooked Vultures is a supergroup. But there’s nothing super about them, really, because their idea of music is basically long jams on stage and rehashed QOTSA riffs. So if you love them as much as I do, good news, new album coming soon.
“Some stuff we’ve worked on, but we’re gonna write pretty quickly and just put it down… we may be a year or so. It will mainly be excess material from the first album, material we started and never finished because we had to go and play the stuff we already recorded!“ said John Paul Jones.

Oh, so it’s not even a proper new album, just B-sides and stuff? Sounds awesome guys. Looking forward to it!
I have an idea for the cover. How about human heads on vulture bodies this time? \m/
