Review: Them Crooked Vultures at Vector Arena
 By Scott Kara from the NZ Herald.co.nz
 
Pic from Birmingham.
Dave Grohl said recently that his time spent drumming in American rock band Queens of the Stone Age in 2002 was like being in the “coolest gang”.
With Them Crooked Vultures – a super group made up of the former Nirvana drummer and head Foo Fighter, Queens main man Josh Homme, and Led Zeppelin multi-instrumentalist John Paul Jones – he has stepped up into a legendary gang.
Even though they range in age from young buck …

Crowd feasts on Them Crooked Vultures
Review by DANIEL NANCARROW from The Brisbane Times
 
Photo: Michael Clayton-Jones
It’s not often you see a rock god in the flesh, let alone three – each with varying claims to rock divinity – bashing it out on one stage.
But Them Crooked Vultures isn’t your average band. They’re an all-star fusion of baby boomer bassist, gen-X drummer and modern day frontman who combine to form a rumbling, thunderous, timeless whole.
Singer/guitarist Josh Homme greets the crowd with a simple mission statement, which proves an acknowledgment of …

In John Thomson’s post on Friday’s Melbourne show, he said his 16 year-old  son commented “that was truly good as.”   I think my (much younger) boys’ take on the common Australian expression could be applied to last night’s (Saturday) show – “That show was better than as!”

Last night was truly a great show from Them Crooked Vultures.  It was a hot 36 degree day from Melbourne with the venue being the old Festival Hall.– A venue I had not been to before but famous for The Beatles playing there. Being so old, there was no air conditioning and the drinks queues …

When frontman Homme took the microphone and shouted “are you ready to have a good time?”, the crowd were quick to answer.
Opening the night at Challenge Stadium were local boys The …
