ZZ Top frontman Billy Gibbons says he’s working on a project with Dave Grohl of Foo Fighters and Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Age that may be a new album by Homme’s band.
“Just one month ago, I was making a record with Queens of the Stone Age,” Gibbons tells the U.K.’s eonmusic. “Dave Grohl was also taking part and he decided to have a big barbecue. So there was this interesting gathering.”
The Texas rocker continues, “We had gone to the desert to work on just a couple of tracks, and I was outside, and Josh came out of the studio, and he had this box, and it was making some strange noise. And I said, ‘Hey, what is that?’ and he goes, ‘I don’t know, I just found it.’ I said, ‘Don’t touch a thing; we’re going to use it for the song!’ So that’s how it started.”
It certainly seems that Gibbons is referring to a new entry in Homme’s long-running collaborative Desert Sessions side-project series, the return of which Josh teased last month. However, Gibbons says they were working on a full Queens of the Stone Age album.
Gibbons previously contributed guitar and vocals to a few songs on Queens of the Stone Age’s 2005 album, Lullabies to Paralyze, while Grohl has played drums and percussion on two other records by Homme’s band: 2002’s Songs for the Deaf and 2013’s …Like Clockwork.
