Them Crooked Vultures, the supergroup featuring Dave Grohl, Led Zeppelin’s John Paul Jones, and Queens of the Stone Age’s Josh Homme, reunited for their first show in 12 years at Foo Fighters’ Taylor Hawkins Tribute Concert on Saturday
Just as they were back in the day, Them Crooked Vultures were joined onstage by Alain Johannes, the guitarist who’s toured with the likes of Eleven, Queens of the Stone Age, and PJ Harvey. Frequent Grohl collaborator Greg Kurstin also provided keyboards. The band first covered Elton John’s “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road” after Sir Elton himself remembered Hawkins in a video message. From there, they performed the original song “Gunman” and covered Queens of the Stone Age’s 2005 song “Long Slow Goodbye.”
Them Crooked Vultures released one eponymous album in 2009 and toured into the next year before Grohl, Jones, Homme, and Johannes returned to their respective main projects.

Besides a Them Crooked Vultures reunion, the event has so far featured performances from Liam Gallagher, Hawkins’ bandmates in The Coattail Riders and Chevy Metal, Violet Grohl, and more. Tickets and merchandise sales from both shows will benefit Music Support and MusiCares, charities chosen by the Hawkins family.
