Dave Grohl hasn’t given up on Them Crooked Vultures despite the supergroup being inactive since 2010. During a recent appearance on Apple Music Hits’ Medicine At Midnight Radio, Grohl said that he “hopes” the band will get back together in the future.

Grohl formed Them Crooked Vultures with Queens of the Stone’s frontman Josh Homme and Led Zeppelin’s bassist John Paul Jones. They released their self-titled debut album in 2009 and followed up the record with a worldwide tour. The supergroup went on hiatus shortly after and hasn’t been active since, despite occasional talks about a second album.

Speaking about Them Crooked Vultures on Medicine At Midnight Radio, Grohl revealed that the supergroup came together while he was presenting an award to Led Zeppelin members at a ceremony in London. He approached Jones and asked him whether he would like to be part of the project with him and Homme. Jones gave him a positive answer, and the bunch quickly started working on songs together.

“Them Crooked Vultures was just a dream come true for me,” Grohl revealed. “When we sat down to start playing, it was about 30 seconds to a minute, and we realized this is a real band.”

While the supergroup didn’t work together since receiving a Grammy Award for Best Hard Rock Performance in 2011, Grohl believes him, Homme, and Jones could continue where they left off.

“I hope that someday we do it again,” he added.
